ALERT: And yet another e-gold phishing email

Some minutes ago, I received another phishing email with clear intention to steal my e-gold account username and password and other information needed to receive access to my account. There have been dozen of such alerts I announced in my blog so I assume a real number of such attacks is much higher. I just hope the no one of my readers ever clicked on such link. So, spread the word around to people who use online e-currencies. At the moment it looks like e-gold users are under attack but we can't know when those criminals will attack other currencies.

Here is a copy-paste of an email I received. Or links are of course removed.
