Always mouse over on all links in email before clicking them!
Plus you can spot the bad English in the email
their might be some security problem on you account
Yeah these guys will probably never learn to spell and actually write in good English, but they are making progress
However many (most?) people don't read such emails and just see the title, take a quick look and if it looks authentic - click the link
Thx a lot for the heads up Michael!
thanks for informing!
I like this type of emails and in fact I always have to laugh when people let them catch by this crap
It's full of typo's, and you clearly see the URL as a stupid link, which isn't godaddy / paypal / moneybookers / anything to the site realted
Well thanks for informing me
Thanks for informing us, I haven't gotten one yet but now I know what to look for.
Thanks, I'll keep my eyes open.
I actually like getting phishy e-mail. I do all my surfing in a VM with undoable disk images (no fear), so when I get a phishy mail, I go hither to thier bogus logon page, and start entering bogus logons into it.
Nothing like giving a cuckoo's egg to a phisher so he "outs" himself.
