    • Samantha, it’s a pleasure to see you here again.

      You know, some of the “phishing scam” emails are called “forgeries”, and they use real logo’s (copied) and cut>paste text, etc.. Some of the ‘forgeries’ are very, very real looking (and why shouldn’t they? The only thing changed is where the “click here” actually takes you to!) and gone are the days when you could count on atrocious grammar and Engrish tipping us off .. though you still see that.
      For a sample of a ‘forgery’, see Amazingly Dangerous Email: Must See To Believe.

      And, just because it’s good to know in this day and age, see 10 Ways To Dodge The Latest Online Scams.
