The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

They never give up

One part scam, one part spam — how can I resist mentioning it here?

Dear Customer,

Fleet Bank team is happy to introduce a new level of security. Follow the link to
the information update and login page:
http://www.fleet-security.com

Kind regards, Fleet Bank team.

Just incidentally, fleet-security.com has nothing to do with Fleet Bank or any Fleet Boston Financial operation: it's owned by Michigander Kelley Shlentz and exists, so far as I can tell, specifically to steal personal information. (I say "so far as I can tell" because I couldn't reach the site this morning: perhaps someone else has already lowered the boom upon this schmuck.) It's people like that who make the death penalty understandable.
