The Phish Are Still Biting

It still surprises and amazes me that some people are still getting sucked into the phishing scams. Maybe I haven’t received anything too sophisticated, but I can’t imagine anyone falling for the latest one I received.

I received this email (in my Yahoo alias account) that passed through Yahoo’s spam filters. It’s a phishing scam – an email requesting my personal information. It’s obviously not from Yahoo. The email contains:

Misspellings and Grammatical Errors
You should be immediately suspect of any misspellings and/or grammatical errors in emails from professional corporations.

ATM Debit or Credit Card Number and PIN Request
I wouldn’t even give my ATM card number & PIN to my bank through an email. This is done over the phone – when I call – or in person.

Any email that has the above characteristics should be reported and then deleted. Period!

Don’t get “hooked” in or fall for the “bait”. (puns intended) ;-)
