Interesting... This one is some sort of phishing alright, but the thief is not trying to get direct access to your account. Well... maybe this is the first step. At least, on the first page they do not ask you anything too important. Your name and phone number...

So I filled the first page... and on the 2nd page there is another form which asks for your your full name, credit card number, the expiration date and the "ATM PIN" (they call it Electronic Signature!) So here we are. They can then go to an ATM and use your PIN to get some cash. Because using a credit card online, most companies will not ship "at the wrong address". But an ATM would most certainly give some money away... if you can replicate a card. I'm not too sure whether they can do that. Most certainly.

As you can see, that's on a server in Germany (well, at least it is a .de) and the hacker copied the page without the stylesheet so it looks ugly. But overall, it looks interesting. It is the door of anti-fraud being used for fraud. Good joke! See the official site here.

I suppose that the government should take care of one thing in the US: eliminate the huge database of 99% of the Americans and aliens who happen to have a right to live here. That would reduce the fraud dramatically in one day. See here for what they do instead: Spend tax dollars continuing to suppor businesses in keeping tracking of every person's move (financial, military, scholarship, medical...)
