Everyone loves a tax refund, but one credit card thief isn't very clever (or good at the English language). He begins by identifying his From: address as 3D Secure, whatever that is. Here's the rest of the message:
Subject: Tax refund notification!
You have get a Tax Refund on your Visa or MasterCard.
Complete the formular, and get your Tax Refund.
(Your Refund Amount Is $620.50)
If anyone is foolish enough to fill out the form and click the button (instructions call it "Activate Now," but the button is labeled "Confirm Now"), the data is sent to a server program on yet a different Korean web site. Then it's only a matter of time before another crook buys the number and uses it for an online purchase or makes a fake magnetic strip to try out the number on a gas pump.Posted on September 03, 2010 at 03:37 PM
