Oh Noes!!!

Apparently my e-mail address has been compromised, I just got this official e-mail from my service provider this morning:

Cox Communications,

Hold on a minute while I send them my e-mail address, password and birthdate immediately.

I’m back.

Whew!  I feel much better now that that’s done.  My e-mail account is safe again.

Is there an award for “worst phishing attempt ever”?  If there is, I need to enter this one into the contest.
