Credit card social engineering scam

I got a broadcast email warning me about this scam, which I'd already heard of. I wish I could remember where I saw it before. Anyway, it's a real scam, it's been going on a long time, but we don't know how widespread it really is.

It's a good example of social engineering, which has always been an effective way to breach security. As (if) computers get more secure, this kind of attack will be all that's left.
