The "phishing saga continues". Please do not reply to the following types of e-mail requests. They are simply scams. The text in bold is a good example of phishing. I just received it today.
The Helpdesk Program that periodically checks the size of your e-mail spaceis sending you this information. The program runs weekly to ensure your inbox does not grow too large, thus preventing you from receiving or sending new e-mail. As this message is being sent, you have 18megabytes(MB) or more stored in your inbox.
To help us reset your space in our database, please enter your current user name (_________________)password(_______________)
You will receive a periodic alert if your inbox size is between 18 and 20 MB. If your inbox size is 20 MB, a program on your Webmail will move your oldest e-mails to a folder in your home directory to ensure you can continue receiving incoming e-mail. If your inbox grows to 25 MB, you will be unable to receive new e-mail and it will be returned to sender. All this is programmed to ensure your e-mail continues to function well. Thank you for your co-operation. Help Desk
The Wayne State Help Desk will never send out this kind of request and neither will any reputable service.
