    Fake Money Gram/Western Union Account Verification (Phishing)

    This seems to be phishing attempts through a fake (yet convincing) e-mail from Money Gram, asking for account detail verification by clicking a link. This is the same recvd from numbers sending me numerous amounts of scammail! Persistent Bugger!

    I receive at least one of these a day. I actually go to the westernunion site by a separate link and discover that they money had already been picked up. I never click a link that is included in an e-mail.
