Admin Read: Important Security Update (Phishing For Passwords)
- I received this message this morning... it is a password phishing attempt and were I simple enough to fall for it and give them the information they want I would soon find my email account hacked and spitting out spam. It is this sort of scam that is the primary cause of the recent explosion in spammings of email lists by otherwise reputable members. Note the poor grammar and the source email account although a Gmail account is not an official Gmail address. You all have been warned.
