Below is a screen-shot of a scam mail I received with the above (less ‘scam – Must Read) as the mail subject.
Now listen carefully, this is a scam, so don’t click reply if you see such in your mailbox as it looks very much truthful.
gtbscam_pic_1: Original email scam mail
The ‘from’ mail-addr is email@example.com.
See the next screenshot.
gtbscam_pic_2: GTB PLC authentic website screen-shot.
where #1 is the http://www.gtbplc.com URL,
where#2 is the ‘Internet Banking Login’ link, and
where#3 is https://ibank.gtbank.com, a Scam Alert by GTB, as a pop-up window, after clicking the Internet banking Login URL.
#3 is from internet explorer:
and this next one is from Mozilla Firefox. I’m using v5.0

FYI, Calhountech.com sells used computers and network hardware: computers, servers, cisco, Sun Dell, etc. As of this writing, this is the screenshot of their buisness webpage:
Please note that http://calhountech.com/webtree/ibank_gtbplc_com.php presently results in a ‘requested URL not found’ error message:
I would rather not point fingers on this one. At the beginning of last month, I received a similar one on my yahoo mail-box and heres another, totally different URL:
Hunt Essential Fish Fantastic caters through an exclusive club for the elite hunter and fisherman who in particular want to hunt and or fish at premier African destinations.
so what can we conclude?
Could all these genuine websites have been hacked into? – some hacker must be laughing his way around – while he has located his fraudulent weblink and pages in various webservers, and is still fine-tunning his skills, etc, for greater damages?
whatever it is, beware!!!
