I fill in some of the phishing forms when I'm bored. I use rude words for the password, and my address is sometimes 1600 Pennsilvania Avenue, Washington DC 20500.

What disturbed me was the bankofthewest trick- using two vv for w might possibly fool ME if I didn't look carefully.

Bottom line- I never ever follow a link in email, or call a phone number given in said email.
