The scammers are good but their greed gives them away. The attached image is of a phishing email sent to me today.  If they made it only for 50 bucks or 75 bucks I would have maybe started to believe it, but probably not. 500 buck Christmas gift card? Yeah right.  Nobody gives that out. Maybe in scammer world they do.

So, this holiday season beware of all the different ways scammers will try to take advantage of you. The links within a phishing email when clicked can launch viruses that allow hackers to crack your computers security.  It can be a very dangerous thing. So this holiday season, as always, be careful what you click. (click on image to see larger copy)
