"phishing" again...

Published: 8-17-2010 11:45 am

Greetings,
 
Yes, "Phishing" has started again.  Well, not really.  It has not really ever stopped.  This morning I had this message in (in italics) my inbox:

Please ignore all messages of this type.  If you do not get this kind of message from my office it is bogus.
 
Thank you,
