is this a new method hackers use?

Post by poky.woky on 24th November 2010, 4:56 pm

Hi everyone (:

I recently received this email, which turns out to be fake.. obviously. But it did trick me at first, but things became clearer as I looked at it more. It seems as though people are coming up with new and more convincing ways of tricking others /: Just thought I share it with everyone. (:

Yeah. Sadly the email sent from is usually a hacked email address from some innocent person.
