I got a personal email from a well respected blogger which was weird. It was weird that this blogger would be emailing little ol ME – and then the email itself was weird.
The email said something along the line of that he had found a picture of me and I should click on the link. Being the modest sort – I clicked without thinking. When I clicked (something I normally don’t do – but this is a RESPECTED blogger) – it was obviously a phishing attempt trying to get my Twitter information. Thank goodness it was obvious what was going on. Some phishing attempts are top rate – this one wasn’t.
Remember, it’s only paranoia is they’re NOT out to get you and it’s obvious that someone is out to get you and acquire your Twitter login information. I didn’t think much of it until this morning when I read Chris Brogan’s Log Into Twitter And Change Your Password.
Ignore the email if you get it. If you get one from me – let me know. Change your Twitter password in the meantime.
