I have received another junkie spam mail on my Hotmail account asking for my password and other confidential information. People like this are not really stopping from this very unconvincingly scam to get inside emails.
My guess is that it happen because I used my email address for the Busby SEO Challenge and participated in the “Invite a Busby SEO Challenger” to win an iPod Touch. Its because Busby posted the email address on the contest ladder and possibly email spammers and crawlers scrape email addresses from this posted email. I don’t know if others experience the same way. Here’s the portion of the Busby invitation ladder:
However, it’s not a problem for me because I’m using an account under Hotmail and they have this anti-spam or anti-junk mail feature that filters this kind of emails. If ever you will received this kind of emails pretending they are legitimate web-based email administrators asking for your information so that your account will not be closed or terminated, don’t you ever get fooled by this junkie message. Hotmail and other free web-based email providers never ask for passwords or private information from you! They will not do that it’s because they have it already!
