The Attack of the Big Phish

Note to self:

1. Do not open any of those PayPal emails.

2. Do not open any of those eBay emails.

3. Never give out personal information on a phone call that you did not initiate.

4. If the email has links that they ask you to click, read the URL properly (specially the domain name) before clicking on it. Most of the time it will be a fake website.

Thank you, Yahoo!
