Down the tube

Yet another approach to getting personal information: a note from “YouTube Support” to tell me that my video has been approved.

At least they went to the trouble to putting up a valid fake YouTube URL. (It comes back “This video is unavailable.”) It might even have worked if they’d sent it to an address I actually use on YouTube, which they didn’t.

    Got the same message. But I’ve never posted a video, so I was mildly suspicious…

    That would tend to arouse suspicion, yes.
