RE: How much is the Phish?

Well, at least they did not threaten to sue you unless you resolved the problem...PayPalLikeDudes have been doing this to local and less spam protected e-mail domains that certain acquaintances of mine still use. I usually make a mouse over to verify the url that the browser would usually show bottom left but when you're on their territory, a mouse over can be coded to effectively be the same as a click. I think. My info is based on reading old coding guides...For Dummies while sleepy.

Aye, grammar often tells a different tale. Still, one they, one of those bold guys will know the language well enough...

The sad thing is...numbers make these scams work. If 99 % would not fall for it, 1 % will. Send to 1000 and that's 10 hits, etc.

Yeah, it is a numbers game, like spam and Nigerian prince scams. They send it out 270,000 times and if only that 1% bite, they get hold of 2700 wallet with who knows how much value inside. Large wallets aren't necessarily held by security conscious people.

Ah, man...I guess I'm luckier than most. It'm usually mailed by Ethiopian princesses or other beauties from their league.
