I was the recipient today of what turns out to be at least an 18-month old phishing scam. Somehow they got my corporate email and phone number, but a completely mangled US Mail address.
cio-summit.net, upon clicking, forwards to http://188.8.131.52/ciosummit/. Yeah, I'm forking over $1000 to a _THAT_ URL.
Google only showed me one other site referencing this issue, but it documents over a year's worth of people encountering the scam: otherlibrarian: cio-summit.net
So head's up, fellow geeks.
Did you get the email I sent you last? Just in case it didn't get to you I've copied it below for your review. If you get a chance please let me know of your interest.
