Hi all --
I just got a spam in the mail in html format and did some investigation and found the following:
First, the mail claimed to be from a firm called "internet banking trust" from the support department, and asked me to "sign on" and enter my bank account numbers so I could do internet bill pay etc.
Now obviously very few people would do this, but I decided to save the message and look at the html source to see if I could learn something.
Now I put the source in Notepad and searched for "sign on" and found the following...
The hyperlink for the sign-on was a raw IP address 184.108.40.206 which I copied and went into internet explorer and tried going to that address to see what I'd find, with no info as to who I was or the return email path.
But when I got to the link I got a 403 error page with the following message:
HTTP 403 (Forbidden)
You are not authorized to view this page

HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden Internet Explorer -------
Anyway, happy surfing and have a truely happy and enjoyable Thanksgiving! --le
