    Hi

    I've been getting Phishing emails in the last few days.

    I got one from my bank saying that someone had tried to log into my account and asked me to input my Account information and Password, to confirm that I was the account holder.

    It said that if I didn't do this immediately my account would be frozen.

    Now tonight I got one saying the same thing about my Twitter account, almost word for word.

    The thing is I don't have a Twitter account.

    I reported the bank one to my bank, and saw that they already had a place to input the information.

    So just be careful, never give you info via email to anyone.

    Mike

    they work on bulk... most people don't read their emails anyway.

    p.s, I assume you have a hotmail | outlook | live account... Microsoft is having issues this week.

    @MikeHawthorne: good Advice!! :up:

    @Norway: I read your E-mail yesterday; oh, wait you didn't send me one.:rofl: That's funny for sure. People who get caught in Phishing only read and respond to scam E-mails; wonder what they do with the rest of their E-mails?? Makes you wonder..
