I received a similar email yesterday that might be easier to fall for. It was purportedly from the technical support team & webmail account admin, It stated that my in box was full and to be reactivated I was to send info such as my log in info and password. This looked like it could be real except it didn't mention my name, had at least one misspelled word, legitimate businesses don't ask for that info in an email, and I am still getting mail. While I have gotten several of the Nigerian type, this is the first time I have received a phishing email of this type.

BEWARE!

In my opinion the easiest way to approach things like this is to always remember, "One never gets something for nothing".

of course opening them at all then lets them know you have a good and valid email address to continue to spam and sell to others. Best thing to do is just send it un opened to the junk mail folder so that it learns from that to consider it junk.

I'm personally enthralled with the title "EDITOR TO THE PRESIDENT".
