Thread: Phishing emails

    At one stage I always used to click on the links on those emails and then enter fake login credentials... Just to see how authentic the site looks and where it goes. They started off pretty bad with fonts mismatching, empty picture boxes, spelling errors... but later on they got pretty good. Exact replicas of the online banking sites.

    No guts, no glory, no brain, same story.

    You guys all lose. I've got Pres Barack Obama and the Nigerian president themselves wanting to send me 2.5 million dollars. I was told this by the director of the FBI.

    And I know it's legit because he sent it from his personal hotmail address

    Man! You are the luckiest man on the forum bro. Any chance you can point me to the Nigerian prince who helped you out?

    Don't worry. He'll find you.

    I haven't had a scam email in a long time (about a week) but I've been getting emails about loans and motivational seminars by the dozen each day.
    One day, I'll grow up and become responsible.
    Probably not today.
