Steaming Mad

Here’s another phishing attempt that made it through my spam filter. I have no idea what “Steam” is, but I hope those who do know don’t fall for this hoax and part with their personal information. The link doesn’t take you where it claims to, and the e-mail address likewise shows that the e-mail isn’t from the company it claims to be from (root@ns1.domainwebhosting.com).

    Would you like to donate to my charity? We will be donating copies of Webster’s New World English Grammar Handbook to phishers and other scammers.

    How about a charity that donates such books to the victims of scammers, to help them learn to recognize those who are unlikely to have millions of dollars to transfer around? :)

    You’d just be insulting them :-)
