    I have a project. Aim's to raise awareness upon stupid idiots in my school; internet illiterates.

    Someone please give me a link of a site that "impersonates" popular sites (Yahoo, Gmail), asking for financial/e-mail accounts. But no thanks to sites containing viruses. I just want those who attempts to fool a bunch of idiots with a "visual impersonation". thanks!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Me, I haven't been victimized yet by phishing scams, let alone find a fake site. So please someone lead me to one.

    I really need a sample.

    I have often received Paypal fishing emails.

    I just forwarded one of them to the address you're using with your member account, so check your mail [​IMG]
    (and don't enter your paypal login and password!)

    hope this helps

    If you want a torrent example... there's always the mininova.com vs. mininova.org bit

    and links in e-mails are most often underlined, that's what makes e-qold a really successful phinshing site.
