On Tuesday while flying out to the Internet Telephony East Expo in Miami Beach, this gem landed in my Comcast email box.

My first impression was a three-parter:

  1. How in the hell did this get through? Comcast email has a decent (I didn't say very good, I said decent) filter.
  2. Who is this dumbass and where is he from? Is he doing the bidding of some rich guy in a dacha, or is he simply a college kid logging on from some Internet cafe in a dusty place where the chants from the bazaar can be heard from the street outside?
  3. Who would fall for this moo goo ?

Indulging my curiosity- but not my common sense- I went to"Click here" and did just that.

And then here's part of the page that came up.

Hey loser, I have some "informations" for you. Skype users are too smart to fall for your phishing attempts. Find some other fools.

That's what you get when you phishing.
