If you fall for it, you're dumb. You don't need a program, all you need is a brain.

IMHO if you believe that a bank would send you an email asking for your credit card number (which they already know)
you account number (which they already know)
or you pin number (which they already know)

then you deserve to get ripped off.
I totally agree. They'd contact you through mail or phone before email. It's just common sense.
