Stupid Punts!

Stupid Punts!


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

Be warned, there is yet another PayPal phish infesting the net at the moment.

This one looks extremely plausible, as it contains numerous graphics and links.

However, as with all the other phishes, it is a con designed to trick you into revealing your passcodes.

PayPal confirm that it is a fake, and are taking action to shut down the website that it links to.

In the meantime, should you receive one of these, do not click on the link but throw the email away.

Text, without graphics, of the phish follows below:
