  1. This is nice to know but how can we be sure that the said message is a fraud? What was the evidence? Is there anybody conducted an investigation? It seems authentic made by --they are using the domain name, e.g Just a simple tip, do not trust with any websites especially if you are about to disclose your personal info. It is better if the website that requires you to register is using the secured "https" instead of just "http". Google and Yahoo use "https" and that's one of the good things about them. HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is a HTTP that uses secure SSL/TLS protocol to provide encryption and secure identification of the server. This will prevent hackers along the way of transmission/uploading your data to only be recognizable by the intended server.
    A friendly advice that in registering to untrusted sites (I am not saying Myspace) better not to give the full information about yourself.
    I have made registration for how many times with different social media sites but I never reveal all information about myself.

    In my previous post to my blog Identifying Internet Scam with subtitle "Paying By Credit Cards"
    I have mentioned about this HTTPS. Just bear in mind that we still need to be careful in dealing with websites even if they are using HTTPS.
