Re: Scam Alert
there are also similar such email scams (called phishing, i believe) for eBay, PayPal, every bank and credit card company around...any place or company for which you have or might have private information stored.
unfortunately, there are many who fall for these. i have gotten many of these emails myself, most being for companies i don't even do business with. naturally, these go right into the recycling bin.
best bet is, when in doubt, don't even open the email up. absolutely don't provide that information through a link given through an email - even if the address seems legit.
fortunately, all things catch up with people, and hopefully the dishonesty of the people pulling these scams will catch up with them and destroy them.
