Re: [Scam] New (at least to me...) JP Morgan Chase Scam Attempt
That's a reasonably typical Nigerian 419 scam. In this case, it appears to have originated at an Australian IP address (18.104.22.168) - probably a virus-infested end-user system that has been taken over by scammers.
Just to be clear, this has nothing to do with JP Morgan Chase - the scammer is just using that name in an attempt to make it sound authentic. The real bank is not involved.
