Phishing attack targets Google

Internet security firm Websense is warning surfers to be on guard for a phishing e-mail that pretends to be from Google alerting recipients that they have won $400.

The e-mail directs users to a spoofed copy of Google’s site, where “winners” are prompted to click on another link to claim their prize money. The next page asks the visitor to enter their credit card number and shipping address.

    Clever of the phishers to request the credit card number so that the money can be credited directly to the victim’s account… but they still managed to include Phish-English grammar and punctuation errors on their fake Google site.

    I’m still waiting for the $500 Bill Gates promised me if I sent his email to ten of my friends… ;)
