    Heads up! Fun email I got

    It's a web based form with fields for each of the "following information" bits, and a submit button. Verification's email address and the domain referenced in the form action tag are www.online-banking.net, which seems to be in germany? Amazingly, their web site doesn't seem to be working. Thank god my fiance knew enough to ask if she should fill this out.

    LOL.. gotta love the social engineering going on. And it is somewhat scary in that people do actually fill these out and think its their bank...

    Yeah...As pathetic as that is people do fill it out. And arent they in **** when they do...you are lucky she asked you first
    [gloworange]And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict\'s veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. \"This is it... this is where I belong...\" I know everyone here... even if I\'ve never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again... I know you all...[/gloworange]

    You know, you'd think that if someone was going to go through the trouble on this, they might run their bait text through a spell checker 1st.

    I belive that these are the same people that save their passwords and creditcard numbers on tablet paper by their computer.

    'tis a sad thought that some people do not have the common sense to stop and think about this for just a second before they go filling out this kinda crap. these kinda people are just a waste of our good oxygen!
    just making some minor adjustments to your system....

    With all the subtlety of an artillery barrage / Follow blindly, for the true path is sketchy at best. .:Bring OS X to x86!:.

    Yes it is scary...
    For example: its "peaple" who supply power and water to homes or push the launch button incase of world war.
