email pranks 2010.

Last year I only had 3 email attempts to fool me into giving up my passwords.

These were sent to my main email address but each one was considered non-authentic.

gmail, yesterday asked for my details for any unused accounts,

no "normal" info, like warnings and what you can disregard, etc...

paypal, 6 weeks ago ask for confirmation of my account details, as they were clearing unused accounts,

and virtualcard, a couple of months before that.

I've not responded to any of these emails, looking very official (without doing a live "a and b comparison") but just from reading them, there was not enough information to convince me they were official.

I might have saved something there, not sure.
