    That’s great news though I would give them no less than ten years and daily beatings!

    I have only ever gotten one of those e-mails where is stated something like your account has a serious problem, you could be losing money from your account due to possible fraudulent activity please click then link and log in with your account name and password to view and correct the problem immediately!

    Fortunately I knew it was BS but I could easily see a lot of innocent people getting taken in by such a e-mail and I feel very sorry for them.

    That's most probably how most people's bank accounts get compromised. Those innocent people need to learn not to fall for such types of con e-mail.
