New Feature – Phishing Email of the Week

As many of you know, phishing – the scam-artist practice of using bogus email to acquire personal information – has become far more sophisticated in recent years.  This has result in countless instances of identity theft, and has a spawned an entirely new industry of identity protection.  For that reason, people who receiving phishing emails tend to know to delete them or simply ignore.

That being said, some phishing emails are simply too funny to ignore.  These messages range from the inane to the idiotic to straight-up hysterical.  Beginning this weekend, this blog will feature a weekly ‘Phishing Email of the Week’, which will showcase the most boneheaded, moronic, and funny attempts at identity theft out there.  Fellow readers, you are welcome to submit your phishing emails for consideration, with the best emails being posted.  If this becomes big enough, I may enough consider tossing out a prize for the Phishing Email of the Month or Year.
