This phisher has realised there are lots of phishers out there.  I’m sure it’s a comfort to him/her to know they are not alone.  The current phishing attack has, allegedly, caused the Federal Reserve Bank to put a stop to all Federal Wire transfers for 10 days. 

You can get all the information you need by clicking on one of the links.  I don’t know where the links took you when they were first posted, but they now take you to p**n sites.  So plenty of information there!!

If you’re not in the mood for p**n, just delete the email.

If you do accidentally click on a link and think your computer might have been attacked by spyware, download and run Malwarebytes.  This is the most efficient malware removal software that I know.
