    very good article, John, thanks for reminding us about these things.

    I always read most of the fine print and the minute they are adding the sentence :that the (n) rules can be changed by them without notice, (n) I am so paranoid, I unplug my computer just in case while I am reading, they send me something hidden.
    I am so puzzled how young people reveal so much private stuff on those social sites and also forward emails with everyone's address ::rolleyes:etc.

    I must say the people who make these scams have thought it out very well. It's a shame all that planning isn't for good :(

    I've gotten countless phishing MSN messages from random people.
    It gets annoying after a while.

    Thanks for spreading the word.

    The social networking sites seem to be fertile ground for phishing. Doubtless, that's due to the large number of young and naive users they have to select from. :)
