yup got a similar mail, too. and yup, any time anyone asks for info up front, never give it to 'em. path to id theft for sure. way to go catching that one. in my version the person was from singapore.

way to go catching this. i didn't know it was targetting kb'ers - thanks for putting that part together.

ironically, i've actually had very similar *real* things happen, but payment stuff comes way later when id's are confirmed.
