Hey look, a professionally done fake security warning.

I used to get these once per week. Some of them were just amusing enough to be posted here. Mostly because someone actually bought them. This one, though, actually looks–dare I say–professional. The way it does when you know they’re at least trying, but still don’t stand a chance in hell.

Uh oh. I’d better go fix my official-looking email account. Yeah, that one. The one I don’t actually have. Nice try, though, kids. It was 30 seconds of amusement.
