Current Status

This blog is not frequently updated because most case-by-case scam reports are now listed in subordinate blogs. At this point in time, most of my efforts are targeted at documenting employment scams in the Suckers Wanted blog.


Phish of the Day: SouthTrust

This phish is nothing new, but I haven't seen one in a while, so I may as well report it. This is one of those phish that uses a single large GIF image instead of text. The excuse for you needing to click the link is some bull about a "software upgrade". The email was received from (WHOIS: Cable Operator Network of Turk Telekom, Izmir, Turkey) on Mon, 13 Jun 2005 08:31:13 +0000. The phish website is at (WHOIS: TaiYuan GPP Netbar, China). We've seen this phishy little URL used before, and it's appalling to see it still active. The site attempts to elicit First Name, Last Name, ATM/Debit Card, PIN, Expiration Date, Online Banking UserId/Password, and email address.
