Everyday I wonder how people get suckered by bad spam messages (NOTE: my parents have been one of these suckers, so I don’t have to wonder too hard), but today I found this gem:
The Verisign logo was linked to: https://www.paypalobjects.com/WEBSCR-640-20110306-1/en_US/i/logo/logo_VIPwhite_66x27.gif (wrong version of the current logo by the way for those paying attention and if you aren't, now you know.)
It looks legit enough, but have people not learned the "don’t download strange documents" or "don’t click on random links" lesson yet? I’m going to guess no or else I would not still be getting these messages.
Reminder: Don’t click on links from emails that sound suspicious. Go to their website on your own in a new browser window. You’re welcome and that’ll be $49.95.
