Craigslist fake emails coming around

See the email below. My Apple Mail junk filter caught this (Entourage DID NOT).
Yes it is junk, but the concern is that some will find this look legal and will click the link. Notice that the link has nothing to do with Craigslist. See the yellow band with the pocs... that's the fake site that when you click the link you'll be dropped onto which will ask you for private information. It's called a Phishing email because that's what it's doing. FISHING for a sucker to click the link, fill in the info and have their account stolen.

So wanted you to see that this is now coming around. If you see one, delete it and then using your webbrowser, just in case, change your password in your craigslist.org account.

Best regards,

Michael
