I just got an email from
someone that told me
"This Email is from MSN Customer Care™ and we are sending it to all MSN Accounts Owner for safety. We are having congestion due to the anonymous registration of MSN accounts so we are shutting down some MSN accounts and your account is among those to be deactivated. We are sending this email to you for you to verify and let us know if this account is still valid? If it is, The following information is needed to verify your account below.
Click on the reply button and fill in your information:
It then goes on to ask for my name, user name, password, date of birth, etc.
I guess I had better answer? What could possibly go wrong?

Only one way to find out.

from some MS office in Russia no doubt.

Then, I hear, that Bill Gates HIMSELF will give you $5 for every e-mail you send.

Really John, as a MSN user you know that Microsoft already has all of that information (as well as how often you are online, sites you visit, whether you surf the net in your PJs, etc.). More likely it is DHS trying to finger you for your online pecadillos (did you know playing FOW has been added to the list of warning signs?).

you shouldn't let anyone finger your online pecadillos
| John the OFM ||08 Nov 2011 9:39 a.m. PST|
No one fingers my online pecadillos but me!
