    I know most of us are smart enough to not fall for emails like this but.....

    If you click the link in FireFox, it has already been tagged as fradulent.

    I'm not sure if IE does the same thing.

    You'd be surprised as to how many of our junior enlisted folks fall for stuff like this.

    Call your local JAG office and ask them. They will be happy to tell you how many people fall for this sort of thing.

    My experiences as a financial counselor and having to explain to junior Sailors, who find their CC and bank accounts missing funds or credit in their names that they didn't apply for, on how to recover from credit fraud.

    A fraadulent website, asking for CC, banking or other personal information, to verify account data that doesn't exist? Doesn't seem to hard to prove at all.

    But I do understand what you are saying.
