account confirmation phishing email
early this morning i received the following email:
although it appears on the left to be a communication from the “windows live team”, check out the actual email address on the right:
firstname.lastname@example.org – doesn’t look too official to me!
phishing attempts are something i’ve dealt with before, but i get a fair amount of forwarded emails from people that are either phishing (looking for information) or just not true (i usually check on the internet before forwarding the “microsoft contest” or “virus” emails and 9 times out of 10 they are fake).
