Number 3? Get a life!

I am so glad that I am not supid. This just arrIved in my inbox...

"kind customer we inform it that for emergency issues it must renter its personal data and change password. It can make it at this address http://www.xsshare.com/forum//includes/paypal/ sincerely yours the direction paypal"

I guess I am an "it". I am so glad "The Direction Paypal" told me so. Otherwise, I might have remained ignorant. I had better rush over to the website so that I can change my user name and password and hopefully my bank account will be empty by the time I am off work this evening. Sheesh.

Speaking of which, I need to go. See? I do have a life. Sort of...wait...crap.

Some of this phishing emails are really, really good though. Like, REALLY good.

This one is pretty much one of the worst I've ever seen.

Often, what these criminals will do once they get your banking info is to make small withdrawals, hoping you won't notice. Ick, ick.
