From what I can tell, Nochex.com is a legitimate online money-transfer service. But I got an insidious spam message yesterday claiming to be from the site, asking me to input my credit card information to verify that my account was still valid. Of course, I don't HAVE a nochex.com account, and most people don't, but I feel sorry for the few people out there who fall for this and send their credit card info to the thief who dreamed this up. It looks like the message contained a gif image of the nochex.com logo, which the company replaced on their domain with a banner file saying "this is fraud, delete this message." Good for them, not that it will save enough people.
