RE: Avoid Phone Calls And Email Scams Claiming to Help With Wind

Ask them if their mothers are proud that they are well educated enough to steal from people on multiple continents. They'll hang up on you.

Oh, oh, now I got the password change screen.

If you haven't gotten it yet, reset your password now, and make note of what email address you used to register, before your cookies expire and you get locked out.

So again, why are you asking people to downvote worldpay.com, when you know the spam didn't come from them, and they are in fact <em>victims</em> of the spammer? Our ratings here can have severe consequences for small websites. You don't just downvote someone because you sort of felt like it that day.

RE: MALICIOUS SPAM, SCAM, AND PHISHING SITES

What Steven is saying is that "phishing" has a VERY specific meaning. It's not just trying to get your personal information.

A good example of why one should not simply rate based on someone else's list of bad sites without having enough evidence to make an independent judgment.
