Warning: ‘Webmail Account Warning’ message is bogus.

By | January 5, 2013

This bogus email is making the rounds and seems to be slipping past spam filters at the moment.  If you get one of these messages, delete it.  The link in the message takes you to a form that asks you to enter your email address and password.  If you do this, you can count on your account being hijacked by spammers all over the world.  This is an example of a ‘phishing‘ email, designed to trick you into giving up your account login credentials. The copies that we’ve seen of this message came from IP numbers in Brazil.
