www.fdagg.com email trick?
A colleague sent me an email this morning about a brilliant website - see title.
It was selling Gold iPhones for ridiculously cheap prices.
Needless to say i asked the colleague why she had sent it and she didn't.
How do these scams end up sending an email from a users hotmail account to all their address book.
She is a bit upset as it went to everybody she knows so she has been mailing them all to apologize.

Happens when someone/bot gets your password. They just log in as you, spam the email contacts. They'll spam contacts over MSN messenger aswell if the person uses it. Send's IM's with things like "check out the party pics from last weeked www.linkylinkathon.com/f43422342re"

I predict it won't be long before the 'check out the party pics' links are drawn from the user's hacked facebook account for a little more authenticity.

I guess the minimum she needs to do then is change her password.
