A Phishing Attempt in my Inbox


Normally, most phishing attacks don't get past the spam filters, but this one did, not sure why... anyway here it is, complete with an appropriate level of bad grammar!

Oh, and the IP address points to China!

    I can’t tell you how many of these kinds of things I get every week. It seems like the laws of diminishing returns though; as more of these come out it is less and less likely that people will respond.

    My response is always the same. I do a whois on the domain and demand that the offending site be taken down immedeatly.
