Can you spot fake emails?

by ccheever@private.bpl.org

It should come as no surprise, there are people using the internet to try and take advantage of you. Can you tell the difference between a real email from someone you want to communicate with about important matters that can impact your money, and one sent my a crook phishing for your details so they can rip you off? Take this quiz and find out how good you are at telling the real from the fake.

Want to read more about phishing? This story is pretty funny – about how phishers are dumb and rip each other off. Do you need to read more about what phishing actually is? Perhaps you’d rather just learn about Phish‘s summer 2010 tour dates (yes I know, its totally unrelated, but much more fun if you’re into the band).
