I have received this scam email alert from Sue.  She kept her head and dealt with it absolutely correctly.  I think she is a star and I am very grateful she sent it to me.  How many of us would have just clicked confirm Huh

Last Monday the 28th, my online banking security was compromised by "GOZI" Malware.
 
I was informed that someone had made a payment of 3,500, into my account by mistake and that my account was frozen, until I called or emailed my confirmation that it would be okay to release the funds back to their rightful owner!!!!
 
I did neither and checked with my bank on Tuesday morning. There was no payment of 3,500 into my account and it wasn't frozen. Lucky that I hadn't pressed the "confirm" button.
