This e-mail comes from a spoofed e-mail address, uses a website to collect personal information about their victims and contains hidden hash buster text at the bottom to fool the spam filters. These characteristics are similar to the Sydney Car Centre Scam. But it is clear that these scammers loose it when they try to use more technical methods to claim their victims. Some of the websites contain invalid e-mail addresses, has no forms to capture the personal information usually collected by these scammers and the e-mail is sent from a spoofed e-mail address, so there is no way a victim can reply to the scammers in these specific cases. It's a good to see the scammers cutting their own throats.
