Trying To Catch A Phish.

There are so many dangers out there on the Internet, just like in the world of reality. One cannot be naive. you must always be vigilant and on guard for those who wish to hurt you. The two worlds of virtual reality and reality are mirrors of one another. You would not walk down an unfamiliar street late at night because an inner voice tells you this is unwise. Well even when you are secure feeling safe and sound in your home that inner voice must be trained to warn you of the dangers that lurk on the Internet. Educate yourself, if something seems a bit phishy, it probably is and will do you harm. Please click this link for information and a video about phishing on the Internet.

CATCH A PHISH!
I just received this email in my yahoo
email account from this email address:
href="http://www.thethinkingblue.com/other/mailto:alert@yahoo-inc.com">color=#0000a0>alert@yahoo-inc.comcolor=#0000a0>
making this webpage to alert others who may possess a gullible nature
not only to, NOT PAY ATTENTION TO THIS "ALERT' but also to, TRY AND REPORT IT.
my response

ATTENTION YAHOO.COM
 I am forwarding this email to yahoo-inc because I believe something should be done to whomever is phishing/spamming these emails to unsuspecting victims. I know everyone should know, not to give out their information such as ID and password to some email address just because it sounds like it's coming from the official yahoo site.  Please let me know what else I can do to help eliminate such threats.
