    It's easy to identify them as they point to a fake link starting with 205.234.236.23/~ytrindic/

    Always mouse over on all links in email before clicking them!

    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

    LoL, i wonder which translators do they use to translate their language to english or it could be possible that they write their own language the wrong way which comes out to be wrong from translators too

    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, 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.

    Things like:
    bassmasters/phishmonger
    demento/phishheads
    phish/phish
    phisher/phisher

    Nothing like giving a cuckoo's egg to a phisher so he "outs" himself.
