This is a scam

One area that I'm going to start blogging more about is Internet security. It's really getting serious out there, and with the current economic conditions I see it getting even worse. Here is an email I just received. If you receive an email like this, you're being scammed. No legitimate company you do business with will EVER ask for any password via email. In fact, no company you do business with should be asking for your password PERIOD (through email, phone, etc . . .). If you forget your password, any legitimate company will provide a way to reset it yourself. ////////////////////\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ This message is from your ISP Network to all Email Account owners.
