TODAYS EMAIL AND PHISHING SCAM
Today’s emails and phishing scam is included below. The domain name for this site was registered on January 4. Needless to say we have not applied for a loan. The email came to our general information email address. The URL provided has no server and an analysis of the actual coding of the email indicates that a redirect to another hidden site is highly likely.
Here for you amusement and amazement is today’s email scam:

Using a safe sacraficial browser we visited the site and noticed that the website had unauthorized logos for the CAN-Spam organization, VeriSign, Equal Housing Opportunity logo, and Trust-e. The links to these organizations were not links at all, but simple pictures of the logos of the trusted site.
