You have get a Tax Refund on your Visa or MasterCard.

Complete the formular, and get your Tax Refund. (Your Refund Amount Is $620.50)

(Inserted here was a link I was supposed to click on to "complete the formular" and no doubt, actually give these morons my Visa or MasterCard number.)

And the sad thing is that some people will probably actually fall for this. Please don't fall for this!
