Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


Examples of the "Nigerian scam" that flood my email box everyday.

Yet another phish is doing the rounds at the moment.

This one purports to be from E-gold.

They advise me that there has been a security issue with my account, and ask me to click on a link to verify my details.

I have two observations:

1 I do not have an account with E Gold

2 No reputable company will ever ask you to click through on a link to verify passcodes etc.

It is a phish designed to trick you into revealing your passcodes.
