I am usually very good about spotting spam, phishing and the like. I got an e-mail yesterday and wondered if it could be a real person on the other end. It was Christine Cho, who was making up an exercize/ diet RPG game software and needed beta testers (RPG = roll playing game for all of those out there that never spent a Saturday night playing D&D in your parents basement.) I thought about responding and telling her I was not interested but my gut told me if I responded there may be more trouble.
So, I googled the e-mail address and thankfully found this blog post. There are 5-6 people who have commented on the bottom that they received the same e-mail and it is obviously a scam. Google and Bloggers saved the day.
