"Smart" Stanford studens duped by scam?
Original post made by kate, Duveneck/St. Francis, on Feb 12, 2007
duped into on-line 'phishing scams' pretending to be Bank of America or any other institution. Anyone computer-saavy has been on to this for some time. it is not new. Just this week I have been 'phished' by scam artists pretending to be B of A, PayPal, Amazon, Wells Fargo, Earthlink, and Morgan Stanley, I do not even have any accounts at PayPal, Wells Fargo, or Morgan Stanley. These somehow avoided my spam blocker.
Help get these criminals off the net. If you have a Mac, go up to "Message" then "View". Click on "Long Headers". These headers leave a trail to the actual sender. Then forward the phony e-mail to your ISP (they usually use "fraud" e.g. email@example.com) or use " fraud" or "spoof" for the others. One will work when the other doesn't. Always send to your ISP and
the institution that is being 'phished'. I do no know the procedure for a PC, but maybe someone out there does know how to view the 'long headers'.
