Phishing, Spam and Hoaxes / It's really funny...
« on: July 20, 2005, 06:41:28 PM »
I receive phishing mail as well as spam mail, but the former are always in English and referring in most cases to entities that doesn't have representatives in my country, like some banks.

But the best of it is that some 'phishers' think that the only IE versions that exist are the English ones, so they fix their traps using the English layout. For instance, the word Address in one of the bars is shorter than its version in Spanish, so the fake URL shows up imediately:

Notice that I moved the Links (VĂ­nculos) bar to show the real address, and how the 'phisher' tried to apply one over the other, without success in this case.

This is the fake email I received:

Notice that it is a bmp image.

And I don't have an eBay account... :D
