Gmail is Smart

I recieved a “phishing” scam e-mail this afternoon to my gmail account. I have PayPal with my gmail e-mail, and the e-mail was from “[email protected]”.

Google told me: “Warning: This message may not be from whom it claims to be. Beware of following any links in it or of providing the sender with any personal information.”

They then provide a link to Learn More.

Here’s a screenshot:

  • Umm, as you can see from the large shot of that screenshot (click it!) I have a few gmail invites…50 of them to be exact.

    So if anyone needs one hit me up.

    heh – good luck getting rid of those invites. everyone who wants a gmail account has one by now. I have like 4 gmail accounts, all with 50 invites.

    and I have recieved that same email and also one from ebay.
