Just wondering - does anyone still fall for this type of phishing. I mean, some phishing attempts out there are subtle and tricky. This one, however, is not. Anyone know - do these really obvious ones ever work? Or are they just part of the "chatter" that eventually will disappear by natural selection of phishing strategies?
