there may be plenty more.

People should be more vigilant on what they click, reply and forward when using emails.

It would be nice to post some guidance in somewhere regarding email usage, what to do and not to do. This may be a help for the forum members also. There are many things that we are unaware of

Sometimes I wonder if people can really be that dumb to type their password there.. I guess they can..
I always get those and never gave a damn.

I wonder if anyone saved the list? I just want to check if mine was leaked. My password to my hotmail is pretty secure. So, I just hope that I won't need to change it anytime soon.

Only way for it to have happened is if you clicked on that link in the email you got (or one like I posted), and then entered your info there.
