Got this odd e-mail (spam/phish/whatever):
Subject: Your order # 12405 has been accepted for the amount 840.00$
Sony DSC-F828 8.0MP Digital Camera
Your order # 12405 has been accepted for the amount 840.00$
Your card will be charged in that amount
.Thank you for your purchase.
You can check the order in your profile.
So I check out the URL (w/ Firefox) and it tells me:
Sorry, your browser can't show this page
if you have a problem with brows this page - open this page in MS Internet Explorer
This is even with Firefox's User Agent extension that's supposed to trick the Web server into thinking it's really IE. So I'm thinking this is some kind of phish to get IE folks to go to their site and with some vulnerability, r00t the machine. That's why I'm not linking to the site & switched out the domain name above (tho you can see the domainname in the headers).
The full mail headers look suspicious:

I'm sure she would be real helpful. I guess I'll keep an eye out for some charge on my card. I am kinda curious what the site would look like in IE and what it would do. Also, kinda funny to get a receipt for a site I couldn't use to order from the first place. Just kinda frustrating when you take these kinda things too seriously.
