Sophos is warning of a phishing email offering $500 from Google’s Gmail service.
Either phishers are getting desperate, or stupid, as this has got to be one of the lamest phishing exploits ever. But with Google releasing new products all the time, even the most ridiculous of attempts is bound to garner a buck or two. Of course, there will be a politician, someplace, who will blame Google for someone, someplace, getting scammed. With any luck, the idiot who gets taken will be a teen, and then Google can join MySpace in the legislative roundup.
