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.
