~ Gmail Phishing ~

Hi there! Since most of us are using Gmail for blogging, I wanted to share that my Gmail account has recently rec'd a couple email requests asking me to verify my account and provide my account data, including my password.

This is *phishing* and can lead to a heap of trouble. Never give anyone your password or account data, even if it looks legit. I always mark these email communications as spam and hit the delete key, you can too.

Tootles, Sue

  1. I do receive a lot of those mails as well, very annoying. But I ignore them ;)

  3. Not only have I gotten those, but also these crazy emails about winning lotteries, cars, etc.
