Good catch - I figure these "Phishing Email" Authors outta be stripped naked , then duck taped to a pole in a desert. As an added incentive , lets pour sticky corn syrup with spinkles of sugar on them and make sure the stakes are grounded in the middle of three or four fire ant hills, with a couple hornets nest as well.......one "bite" for every spam they have sent .......

Hahahah I can look mean (about 6'2'', 220 ) but usually a gentle person. About a year ago I had to change Emails ( I had that Email since 1991 !!!) - checked one Sunday morning and received 147 Spam mails !!!!! I was getting quite a few - tried all the spam filters , just could not take it anymore (they would always flag at least one legit Email). I rely heavly on Email - it was a pain in the butt ....just a pet peeve of mine ....and Phishing is unscrupulous, much worse , preys on the "innocent of computing" than spam. It always has a financial angle and by and large always somewhat successfull. I think is as bad as knocking on the 95 year grandmothers door to sell her lifetime ceadar shake shingles for 4k , taking the check and never showing up ...
