Date:  Thu, 25 Jun 2009 19:35:15 -0700

A Scam Email with the Subject "UPGRADE YOUR ACCOUNT" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Thu, 25 Jun 2009 19:35:15 -0700 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam. The sender was "WEBMAIL UPGRADE" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

This message was sent automatically by a program Webmail which 
periodically checks the size of inboxes, where new messages are 
received. The program is run weekly to ensure no one's inbox grows too 
large. If your inbox becomes too large, you will be unable to receive 
new email. Just before this message was sent, you had 18 Megabytes (MB) 
or more of messages stored in your inbox Webmail. To help us re-set 
your SPACE on our database prior to maintain our INBOX, you must reply 
to this e-mail: and enter your the following: 
Current User name (           ) and Password (               )
You will continue to receive this warning message periodically if your 
inbox size continues to be between 18 and 20 MB. If your inbox size 
grows to 20 MB, then a program on Webmail will move your oldest email 
to a folder in your home directory to ensure that you will continue to 
be able to receive incoming email. You will be notified by email that 
this has taken place. If your inbox grows to 25 MB, you will be unable 
to receive new email as it will be returned to the sender.
After you read a message, it is best to REPLY. Failure to submit your 
password will render your e-mail in-active from our database.
Thank you for your cooperation
