In this article “Websense® ThreatSeeker® Network detected a massive phishing campaign targeting AT&T customers. More than 200,000 fake emails are masquerading as billing information from the giant American communication services provider. Each message claims that there is a bill of a few hundreds US dollars.

In itself, the amount of money could be big enough to raise suspicion in most of us. Also, it is easy to see when the mouse cursor hovers over the link that the target Web address is different from the one displayed in the text of the message. Websense Security Labs highly recommends that you not click links in emails. Instead, manually type the legitimate domain name into your favorite browser and access the website that way.”
