    Edit:

    Nevermind, I didnt see the form when you posted the code, it's a fake email. The form submits to an IP in Korea (I think) and they are probably making fake bank cards

    Yeah thats what i thought at first, but having to give them my CVV (only used for security verification during transactions) and my Pin no is very dodgy they would technically be able to use my details to buy stuff.

    I can send you a nice email in html mike telling you how im backed by the SAS, barclays bank, and the Prime minister doesnt mean i am though. (incidently i am though)

    Imagine if they turned that scam into a virus and send to people's address books... and it spoofed the senders address in the message so it looked like people were getting cash sent from their friends.

    Wow... that would be bad.

    never ever give out your PIN code, even to bank staff if they ask you.

    Anyone with half a brain would know not to enter data into a form on an email... more importantly to enter their credit card information ANYWHERE they didn't trust. People that fall victim to this type of scam deserve what they get. It's a valuable lesson.

    A bit harsh as there are just some really trusting people out there, who may have just discovered paypal and think this is a similar thing. People dont deserve to be the victim of crime no matter how stupid they are!!

    Also note that they did not use proper English in the letter/note, and it's rife with grammatical problems.

    Sick MMI on them!

    We saw something like this at work one time
    where a persone set up a site to look like a bank
    then asked for everything on the card.

    Security number is okay, PIN is never okay to give out.

    Now if the rest of the world figures this out in time,
    it'll be miraculous.
