There's so many of them about these days. Sometimes it makes those Nigerian scams look like a child's game. I remember being sucked in many years ago, in the early days of PayPal, getting an email saying my account was being suspended. I followed the link, 'logged in', left the site then 10 seconds later realised it was a scam. I went to the real PayPal and changed my password, no harm done.
I got one a few weeks ago from a London number saying, a warrant will be issued for my arrest, press 1 to avoid this. It was supposed to be the tax office and I was being charged with tax fraud, scammers.
