An Example of Phishing

Here is a picture of an e-mail I received that is used to fraudulently gain your account information.
When you click on the links and supply your log in information, the criminal who sent this, now has your information and can access your account without your permission.
You can click on the picture to see a larger version of it. Looks very real, doesn't it? Never click on links in e-mail from supposed companies asking for you to log in. If you want to go to that website, go to it from a bookmark, or type a known address into the address bar. The links in the e-mail above go to bogus websites that only serve to allow the sender to steal your information.
