scammers get tricker and trickier...

"verify your e-mail address on the e-gold server by clicking the link below and entering your e-gold account number and password" yada yada yada

and the link then is "http://www.e-gold.com:xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx@k9h7e.PiSeM.NeT/xxxxxxxxxxx"

so this must be how people got duped into giving away their paypal details etc... gits. Still, something for y'all to know.

It's not like I even know who the hell e-gold are, much less have an account with them in the first place.... just the obvious scam offends me, somehow.
