    Scams galore
    I've noticed an awful lot of scams relating to collecting your bank card info and other login info like paypal etc coming from these ISP's.

    Would you not think an Institute of Technology could keep tabs on its users?

    They're getting out of hand. I get about 2 a week.

    Washington Mutual and Paypal.

    They look so real, be careful. Don't click on the "click this link" thing, EVER.

    I got one of those that was supposed to be from PayPal. Almost opened it when I noticed it was addressed to webmaster@mydomain.

    Couldn't tell much from the headers in my McAfee spam killer, but I knew it was fake.

    Wonder how many folks fall for such as these?

    Interesting about the fun you have clicking on the link and giving them dumb information. Have you thought about the actual sucker page - does it contain drive by downloads? will it record your IP address? does it have a potential virus threat? If I were a fake merchant I would certainly look to give you a "free gift" for your time!

    Yeah, a LOT of these phishing emails have a drive-by payload, so I wouldn't visit them in IE. Other browsers should be safer.

    Sam Spade for Windows - http://www.samspade.org/ssw/download.html - is a pretty decent tool for digging around in relative safety.
