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 (203.122.250.109) - 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.

I forwarded a copy (headers and all) to Chase last night should they wish to have their IT people investigate the bogus e-mail further.
