  • Hopeless EMail Phish

Subject: Dear Webmail Subscriber Confirm Your Account.

Body: "Dear Webmail Subscriber,

To complete your Webmail account, you must reply to this email
immediately and enter your password here (*********)
Failure to do this will immediately render your email address
deactivated from our database.

You can also confirm your email address by logging into your webmail account.

Thank you for using!
Confirm Your E-mail Address"

I see some poor phish mails, but this one doesn't even attempt to make sense. Not only is it a bad idea to tell someone to "confirm their account" when they've already been using it for four years(!), telling them they can "confirm their email address by logging into your account" is sort of redundant considering they'd have to be in it in the first place to see the mail. They don't even link to a phish page - the mail might as well just say SEND US YOUR LOGIN, THANKS!

Oh wait, it does.

A quick Google search on the domain extension for the Email used in this scam (@j-mail.info) reveals a prior history with regards email missives. Fake lotteries, grant awards, 419 references - as always, steer clear.
