American Express


Fraud. It's a fake. I know this as it came to my late wife's e-mail address and she never had an American Express card. It also links to a site in the Czech Republic.

Celia is obviously still on the side of law and order, a year after her death.

One out of five!

Important Notes :-

1. Whatever you do, do not respond to any e-mail like this. If you have given bank details to any fraudster like this, then inform your bank immediately and also make sure that you close the account.

2. If the e-mail mentions a well known e-mail address such as from,, etc., then why not forward the offending e-mail to, etc. Hopefully, they'll remove the e-mail address, which will stop people being sucked in.
