New E-mail scams? You may have heard about it.

By March 21, 2005web-tech

It’s called ‘phishing’ and it is a major threat to security.  Here’s the deal: don’t assume that the E-mail you get from some merchant or service, such as PayPal or eBay, is really coming from that merchant.  In the past few days, I’ve gotten at least 3 emails (like the one described here) purporting to come from PayPal.  Fortunately, I know better than to give my personal information to scammers. 

Or at least I think I do.  The scammers are getting more clever, and I’m definitely not getting smarter.  So time is on their side.

P.S. If you appreciate my observations, you might want to join my inner circle.
