Watch Out. I just got an email from Epass that looked OK - it wasn't.

Frantically changed my details. Be careful.

Same as the normal ones do when you have a payment or suchlike. Only difference was a non secure url which seemed wrong to me.

Well quite. But occasionally it looks pretty real and people click.

There was another very funny 419 Nigerian Scam site somewhere but cannot remember it's name yet.

Sending emails is still easier than finding a job.

Don't forget to change the story slightly, the spell checking, small details and whatnot. Good luck ;)

I have a simple rule.. never ever.. ever.. follow a link to anything that has to do with money and one of my accounts. I will read the e-mail, then I will manually go to the site on my own, if I need to.

I'm anal about that kinda thing.. I don't even have epass or my bank bookmarked. I always manually type in my URL's for that kinda stuff.
