Beware, amazon.com account information phishing email going around

Standard

Firefox just saved me from entering my account information into a site that Phishes for details, which is super cool. The site I was sent to was recognised by Firefox as being a “bad” site… It also makes me more sympathetic to other people that have done the same thing…

Here’s the email for your information:

Check this out – great idea! ;-)
_ Community Guy – Jake McKee » Community Contest 2007: Putting Others First

It’s Day 3 of our quest to learn about the impact of sharing on communities. We’ve learned the value of trust and we’ve been reminded of the importance of opening ourselves up, so what’s next?

Great results come when communities and companies share openly. In order to encourage a sharing culture, you need to work to create conditions that allow for that culture to flourish. Creating these conditions are easy – focus on putting others first.
