Wikipedia e-mail address confirmation scam
The phishing spam is coming thick and fast today! Now we have a Wikipedia e-mail address confirmation scam email.
The subject line of the email is: Wikipedia e-mail address confirmation
The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The email reads:
Someone from the IP address 18.104.22.168 has registered the account “reports” with this e-mail address on the English Wikipedia.
To confirm that this user account really does belong to you and to activate e-mail features on Wikipedia, please open this URL in your browser:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:ConfirmEmail/7271ny6133xh76532r0no81677a52398, which goes to http://cruzdealba.es/wiki.html
If you did not recently register for Wikipedia (or if you registered with a different e-mail address),
click the following link to cancel the confirmation:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Invalidateemail/9330tp9359ig57799z4rl45197e13611, again not going to confirm a registration for Wikipedia, it goes here: http://cruzdealba.es/wiki.html
This confirmation e-mail will automatically expire at Thu, 1 Jul 2010 18:28:00 +0900
