    Rec'd this weird email from and the link included was
    very realistic. Do not fall for this! The "update information" link went to
    http://www.explore-msn.com with a string after the link that included my
    email address. The link then redirected to what looked like an official MSN
    website.

    The email was as follows:

    Dear MSN Customer:
    During one of our regular automatical verification procedures we've
    encountered a technical problem caused by the fact that we could not verify
    the information that you provided at registration.
    We urgently ask you to submit your information so that we could fully verify
    your identity, otherwise an access to MSN services for your account will be
    deactivated until you pass verification process.
    To submit your information please use our secure on-line application -
    update information.
    Thank you for using our service, MSN Payment Processing Department.

    It is unbelievable that anyone could fall for this
    obvious scam. The grammar in this attempt at phishing is
    absolutely atrocious. That would have been my first
    clue, and I'm a computer geek with a math degree.
