MySpace – Phising Site uses slightly misspelled URL

It is always important to verify URLs and a slightly mispelled version of MySpace could trick users into sharing the email, cell phone number, or other senstitive information.

QUOTE: You’d have thought Myspace would have snapped up myspac(dot)com, but it seems to have scampered past them in the night like a small scampery thing that scampers. This site will bounce you through a whole bunch of different locations. When you hit that last one, the “Social Reward Center” tries to make you feel all bad about not taking part in their birthday celebrations. Did I say “birthday celebrations”? I sure did, because it’s their sixth birthday!  You’re then asked to hand over your mobile number and email address. Not sure I’ll be signing up to this one anytime soon, especially as the Site Advisor user reviews are so positive.
