Phish Phail

This amused me. Like many of you, I am used to receiving phishing attempts, claiming to be from my bank, or my ISP. Most are immediately deleted, some make me think a little before I confirm it is a phishing attempt, mainly because my *real* bank is clueless about sending emails to me from 3rd party domains.

I recently received an email which was sent “to notify you that we have temporanly (sic) prevented access to your account”. Nothing new about that. Except the “ISP” which was allegedly suspending me (and requiring my signing on to reactivate my account) was none other than filklore.co.uk.

So I had a quick natter with both the postmaster and support dude for that domain, we shared a can of cider, and then I told myself that this was definitely a phishing attempt.
