Gaming scams; Federal Reserve phishing attack

Local station WJLA in Washington DC reports on recent phishing scams involving gamers wanting to move to a next “level” in the community operated by a game.  Since I don’t “game” I’m not sure how it could work.  But people whose accounts have been fraudulently manipulated will find them canceled by gaming manufacturers.  Symantec has an article here.    I wonder if this applies to Second Life.

It would be like having a USCF chess rating fraudulently raised.

There is also a new phishing scam of “embargoed news” from the Federal Reserve.
