Well a few months ago before I really knew what phishing was I got an email from "paypal" saying I needed to verify my account, I figured it was legit because I just used my account 5 or 6 times in like 2 days and maybe used it twice in the year before that. I happily answered the questions. I know, I know Then I start learning about phishing and I think about those emails and start watching my account. Nothing much happened and I thought I was in the clear. I check my account today and I am -$450 oooooo am I mad. There are three different charges on there. I was able to contact one of the companies and they refunded $60 beacuse of the fraudulent charge. I have reported my account through the lost or stolen number and now I have to wait for a new card. This might mess up getting rent paid and who knows what else. Time to hit the range and sqeeze off a few

You = owned.


Get your credit accounts linked to your paypal account changed. See if you can also change your bank account number if it was linked. DO IT. Even if it's a major PITA, DO IT.

NEVER NEVER NEVER Click on links in e-mails. Did I mention NEVER?

Any important website, paypal, e-bay, your bank, etc. you should only get to by typing in the address or using a browser bookmark you made. E-mail is not a secure communications medium. There is no guaranty that the address in the From box is where the e-mail actually came from. Spammers and phishers regularly forge From addresses.

So, did I mention that you shouldn't click on links in e-mails yet?

I talked with my bank today, and one of the companies that the card was used at. They will refund the money, but there are 2 other charges that I am going to get back but might take a little time. The card made a good taget for my mosin so I am feeling a litte bit better about it.

Why do people believe the e-mails that ask for sensitive information and not the ones from the companies that say NEVER disclose sensitive information?

BTW did I tell you guys that I'm going to get about 3 million $ from a Nigerian General's wife.

I don't know.

Just last night my Mrs. Cheese asked she needed to use the computer to verify something.

I walked by a few mintues later and asked her what she was doing and she said verifying her Credit Card information via an email she got from one of the large banks.

I'm glad I caught her before she entered her SS#, debit card numbers, pin numbers, etc...

She still entered her username and password

I made her call and change that info immediately, and finished the application online for her. German assholes (was a german website that the email came from).
