Email Phishing Scams – Keep Your Eyes Open before Clicking

The rules are simple.
When you drive a car you get a license and take classes to understand the rules of the road.
Using a computer and using the Internet require a minimum attention span to help individuals protect themselves..
Beware of email phishing scams that lure you into a site or other link where you think there is something legitimate to find. In this case I am sharing a random email from a collection I receive on a daily basis. This one is disguised as a voice mail message from an online messaging service.
When I hold my mouse over the links though I can see that they point to .php scripts, or otherwise Non safe locations.

We just received one here and by checking the URL of where it asks to login using a social media account it is then easy to tell that it is coming from a rogue website.

Fraud Protection on the Short term

The bad guys that have this debit card data are not going to attack online merchants for goods that they will have to convert to cash. They have been walking straight to the ATMs for the green dollar.

Fraud Protection on the long term

The impact on merchants in the CNP world will be minimal; certainly no more than a few numbers of credit cards but probably less. I do not think the CP merchants will feel it much either. Consumers, on the other hand, are going to take a huge hit. As you probably know, credit card holder's liability is limited to $50 under FTC regulations but I do not think there is any such limit for debit cards. The card holder is responsible for keeping the PIN private and shame on him if it gets out and he does not report the card stolen.
