Paranoia, should not reign, specially on Intelligent people like yourself. Perhaps I can explain a lot about Computer Security, that is one of my carrers.
Maybe reading should be one of your hobbies. The "fishy" he was talking about had to do with the White House wanting people to report anything that appeared "fishy" about the health care plan. In other words, anything that didn't match what they are saying about it. It had absolutely nothing to do with what you are talking about, which is emails/requests that are attempting to steal private information for the purpose of identity theft.
By the way, reading is one of my hobbies, I don't know what subjects you read, mine are quite varied.
I reread the original post and the link that they provided. It was clearly an e-mail that was supposed to come from
the White House, that in my book is phishing spoofing. call it whatever you want to.
If the White House really wants to know about you, I am sure that with all your degrees you are able to comprehend that just by sending an e-mait to the White House is kind of a small way that that they have in wanting to "spy on us" Again, a good dose of paranoia, is not healthy at this time in which we are all supposed to be involved in an issue that will affect all of us.
I am extremely sorry that you have chosen to take the route of scaring the uninformed elderly, I guess, that it is a lot easier than providing ideas, solutions, and good and informed subjects on Healh Care Reform.
Due to the fact that you are such a reader, in many of these threads you will find not only the House Bill but also one of the Senate Bills that are being considered today. I wouldn 't mind if you would read them, and provide your personal opinions based on the sections that are, of your concerned. Try to be objective please, no emotionalisms in your diatribe.
