    Thought folks should know this.
    My advice from the phone scam thread stands; don't give personal info to people who contact you unless you are 100% certain of their identity. Better to call/e-mail them back at a known and trusted number/address.

    Thanks for the heads up, SDS. I've actually received that e-mail.

    While we're on the topic, some fraudulent bank e-mails are going on as well. They look like they're on the straight and narrow, but I was getting them on my work e-mail and I don't use that address for banking.

    I've been getting some very legitimate-looking bank e-mails, as well. Wells Fargo recently contacted me, telling me that there was a potential issue with my accounts. Of course, I don't bank at Wells Fargo.

    If you've got the time, it's a good idea to find out if the banks involved have an e-mail address to which you can report phishing scams. They like to know about those things, and with enough e-mails, they can sometimes find the crooks.
