I just received an e-mail that apparently I've exceeded my in-box quote and need to validate my account by logging into the web site http://xnet-co-nz-accountverification.webs.com/.  WXC might want to block the site or do something like enter fake account details to trace who tries to use the fake details.

That's sneaky ... I would hope that url is obvious to most people though.....

Using a webbs site, couldn't have gone more cheap on it!

classic.

Didn't do well on the mobile view of the site iver, pretty dam obvious.


Love the "send message" submit box too, sounds like a pretty legit submit box for any verification.


I wouldn't be surprised if webs blocked the word password so they had to get "creative"

Got another one this morning, sent from office091000@bellsouth.net with reply to onlineservices@techie.com saying you are upgrading customer's e-mail quote to 5.5GB and need name, user name, e-mail address, and password...

It's a good day for me when:
* I've won 2 million bucks in the Nigerian lottery.
* I can double the length of my penis (again).
* Some Russian model has fallen in love with me after looking at my profile.
