Latest phishing attack: jobseekers (and "volunteers")

Here’s another little spammy phishing scam to watch for.  Emails that send resumes to individuals that don’t actually operate a company that employs people.  The pattern is that they offer to “volunteer” or “intern”.  In the cases I have seen, the email address shown doesn’t match what the mouse drag shows, and there is usually a Word attachment, which probably delivers malware.

I have to say, too, that the tone of a lot of these emails is rather childish and patronizing.

There's another scam trying to get sites to join Ebay.
