Hey It's "ME" Phishing Scam

Phishers want you to click the links they send out in emails.

One really simple-looking phishing email that is bound to catch thousands of people is the one that has "me" in the 'sender' spot and says something like,

Do Not Reply To This Email.

Visit our site "site link here"

Short and sweet, huh?

DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK and visit the site!

Nobody using as 'friendly' or as 'intimate' a sender title as 'ME' would leave just a bare link in an email. They would tell you something more 'friendly' or 'intimate' in an email so that you can be sure that 'me' a 'friend' or someone you know.
