While it has absolutely no relation, I loved one phishing email I got long ago. They replicated the original company's email down to the warning at the bottom,"Only trust links that start with www.ebay.com, anything else is a scam."And the link they wanted you to go to was something like www.ebayphishingsite.com/thisisafakeaddress/butwehopeyoufallforit/wewanttostealyouraccountinfo/sowecanchargetonsofstuffonit.I enjoy regularly reporting phishers to their hosts. There was one guy who kept making fake domains with a hosting company I use for my website, which allows free accounts. They would open it up with some variation of Battle.net and GM. Always spamming about "getting GM powers" on YouTube videos. I would just send an email to customer service, they would reply, and thank me, and the site was gone. I would see the same guy set another one up, report it again, it would go down. It was like playing whack-a-mole. After about a dozen reports and site closures, I finally stopped. He was never going to stop.
