Just got this in my yahoo email. About the only thing they did right was make it look like it came from "Webmail Help Desk" <[email protected]> but when I clicked reply so I could see where the email would go to, it actually goes to some hotmail address. They didn't even tell me what email address, or which username I was supposed to be running out of room on.

The Helpdesk Program that periodically checks the size of your e-mail

space is sending you this information. The program runs weekly to

ensure your inbox does not grow too large, thus preventing you from

receiving or sending new e-mail. As this message is being sent, you

have 18 megabytes (MB) or more stored in your inbox. To help us reset

your space in our database, please enter your current

user name(_________________) password (_______________)

 

You will receive a periodic alert if your inbox size is between 18 and

20 MB. If your inbox size is 20 MB, a program on your Webmail will

move your oldest e-mails to a folder in your home directory to ensure

you can continue receiving incoming e-mail. You will be notified this

has taken place.

 

If your inbox grows to 25 MB, you will be unable to receive new e-mail

and it will be returned to sender. All this is programmed to ensure

your e-mail continues to function well.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Help Desk.

Important: Email Account Verification Update ! ! !

That's ridiculous... I wonder what people have going through their minds when they try stupid things like this ^_^. Email can get returned to sender too apparently.

Whats sad is Im sure a whole ton of computer illiterate grandmas are going to fall for this. Is it really worth their time to root around pictures of grandchildren?

I got that same Wells Fargo scam email. So I did a trace, (since I use BB&T), then called the local Wells Fargo Fraud department, and gave them the info I had obtained. 2 weeks later I got a $20.00 gift certificat to the Outback Steakhouse. Ha LOL
