This one, however, almost got me:
- I don't know anyone named Alana Mcpherson.
- I've never heard of Interbrand.
- This request was one of five, all of which arrived within minutes of each other, all from names I didn't recognize, and all from Interbrand.
If I'd clicked one of the links, I might have fallen victim to a "drive-by" malware infection (which can occur just by visiting a particular Web page). Or I might have been asked to supply some personal info (which I never would, of course, but that's only because I know better).
The moral of the story, as always: look before you leap, and think before you click.
