    Thanks. The scam image looked pretty convincing.

    ....so this was an e-mail message that opened to the screen shot you showed us...?
    I can't think of a time when any ( legit ) host or service would have you enter a password in an e-mail message....that's what would make me a little leary at seeing this.
    I am sure that many , many people would simply type it in there and send it off, though.

    Thanks for the "heads up"....

    Yes it is pretty tricky.
    This has been happening forever on neopets and angelfire though. They have now put in a filter on neopets that wont allow you to post the code from their login page.
