Technological Paradoxes of Phishing Scams
Irrespective of how much I hate the SOB's, I have to give it to the people that create the Phishing Scams and many of the spammers - at least in terms of technology. They definitely come up with some pretty clever mechanisms for pulling off their BS. But what kills me is that for all of their sophistication - they overlook some pretty basic stuff. Even if I had a Washington Mutual account - this might make me think twice:
