    Exclamation Another Phishing Scam - Renew Your Account Now!
    This is the second time I got an email like this:

    All the numbers on that long URL were replaced with x before posted.

    Without getting into further details here, all I will say is that anyone that click on email links, thinking that they are getting a real email from places that they may do business with, are running the risk of getting screwed big time...

    The anchor on that link says: Renew Now your Google AdWords services.
    But if you hover over the link on the email, it will reveal that the link URL is from Russia:

    I don't click on email links, but I wonder how many people still falling for scams like that one.
