|Posting news of this one since it avoided my spam filter, and it's always good to remind people about these scams. Basically, it's the standard "please give us your bank details so we can steal all your money" attempt and looks like this:

This is an HTML formatted email and the link shown above points to a very different domain: dpcna.com
Details for this are as follows:
dutch paediatric cardiac nurses association (DPCNA-COM-DOM)
AOV - IC 909, Geert Grooteplein Zuid
Record last updated on 31-Mar-2005.
Record expires on 23-Oct-2006.
Record created on 23-Oct-2000.
Not quite sure why dutch nurses are trying to steal people's bank accounts but their website is clearly spoofing barclay's website
Whedon: We will rule over this time slot, and we will call it... "This Time Slot".
Fox: I think we should call it... your grave!
Whedon: Ah, curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!
Fox: Ha ha HA! Mine is an evil laugh...now die!
