A New Form of Trickery

I got a piece of email here at massis Friday night which tricked me
into going to an unfamiliar site ... the letter I received was from a
'Jayson' although that probably does not matter, and this 'Jayson'
said "I accidentally found a photo of you at (site) amd was wondering
if you could tell me anything about the background in the photo?"

Independently, I went to (site) and found nothing there except a note
sent from Flickr saying they were investigating to find out _who_
was sending that notice out and that it had a virus attached to
it. Had I clicked on the link provided in the email, of course I would
have inherited the virus.

I have never seen that particular fraud before.
