POF phishing scamPage 1 of 1    
I just got an email saying that I've been added to someone's favourites. The message included an email telling me to add this person to my MSN. I did, thinking some friendly person wanted to chat.

The next thing I know this bot starts "chatting' to me, telling me she's gonna do a webcam show and the only way you can log in is to supply credit card information.

I think you better warn all your users about this scam. Some just might be dumb enough to go for it.


PS. The username was [no email addies in posts/late™]

The other day, I got an email not from POF. It said this guy saw my profile on here and decided to email me. It had a fake phone number with only 8 digets and a profile for another site.
