Pathetic Phishing Attempt

For a good laugh, consider the following email message:

Subject: Attention! Several VISA Credit Card bases have been LOST!

Good afternoon, unfortunately some processings have been cracked by hackers, so a new secure code to protect your data has been introduced by visa.

You should check your card balance and in case of suspicious transactions immediately contact your card issuing bank.

If all transactions are alright, it doesn’t mean the card is not lost and cannot be used. Probably, your card issuers have not updated information yet.

That is why we strongly recommend you to visit our web-site and update your profile, otherwise we cannot guarantee stolen money repayment.

Thank you for your attention.

Good times.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom coming May 12, 2023. Absolutely pumped.
Favorite thing for breakfast is a tall glass of cold water. Hits the spot every time.
Fall is my favorite season :)
Still a few days left before “Unlimited” pro licenses are no longer available.
