Here’s a little lesson in logic. Just suppose a person walks up to you with a mask and a gun and says, “I’m not a robber and you should never give your wallet to anybody; but give me your wallet.” Would you believe them?
Well… the phishers expect you to believe them when they tell you that they aren’t thieves and you should never listen to phishers.
Here’s an email I received this morning.

It’s almost funny. The bad part is: some people will fall for this and go put their information in the phishing site.
