The latest phish: a full AOL mailbox warning

Here’s the latest silliness in the world of phishing. Some sends me an email saying that my AOL mail box is full, with a link.

Of course, if it were full it wouldn’t have shown up. It’s true, AOL stopped deleting recent messages a couple years ago, and I have about 4000 messages.  And AOL is a bit slow, and AOL repeatedly fails to catch spam about its own billing system.

But the “full mailbox” is a new one.
