    You guys probably know how it works just creating awareness for the newbies out there

    I've heard and seen a few similar phishing sites like this but what surprises me is the level of authenticity of these hackers' masterpiece art. 100% similar and these emails actually landed in my inbox instead of my spam folder!

    Be careful guys!

    This is not a hack, it's called phishing.

    Code:

    Also this is not a security / hacking forum, just plain old internet marketing here...

    Thanks for the heads up. I always look at the address bar if I open a link by accident.

    Wow, it's sad that still so many unsuspecting people fall for this. I remember when I was directed to a page like that for Facebook. It is pretty obvious, but a lot of people don't pay attention.
