Bad Grammar and Typos = Phishing

The phishers are out in force. It's Christmas and the phishees are spending money online, so naturally, phishers smell the blood in the water. One thing you can almost always count on though...they don't write very well.

Take the example below: Cardholders of Macy's and Nordstrom's have been seeing this popup. Notice the "you" instead of "your"?

But come on people, why would the card issuer's website be asking you for information they already have?

Stay safe.
