No opportunity lost by spammers

The email from the bank started sympathetically:

Dear ANZ Customer

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by the earthquake on February 22. If you’re a ANZ customer in the affected area, we know you’ve got a lot going on at the moment and we’re doing everything we can to make things easier for you.

Any ANZ Home Loan and Business Banking customers that live in the Christchurch area who have been affected by the earthquake will be offered:

* three months repayment holiday on their loans (including business banking loans)
* $1,000 overdraft or increase of $1,000 to existing personal overdraft or revolving credit facilities.

But then it said:

Also due to the Canterbury Earthquake, we have lost some of our customers internet banking details,so please click the link below to enter your Customer Registration Number and Password details correctly so we can help you update your account:

That’s a definite spam alert – that and the fact we don’t bank with ANZ anyway.

Even in a national emergency no opportunity is lost by spammers who want to get hold of someone else’s money.
