      There are plenty of users out there, maybe elderly folks who are on the 'net to keep up with their kids and grandkids, or maybe just people who are too busy scraping out a living to familiarize themselves with this kind of thing.  And when they get an official looking e-mail that certainly appears to come from a company they do business with, and it directs them to a page that looks just like that company's page should look, I'm not going to say that they get what they deserve.
