Always check the URL

  A friend was receiving spam URLs the other day from a hacked friend and he gave me the URL that was being submitted. Now I don't have the URL in front of me any more but from some basic research it seemed to be a AOL Phish. Now some of you may be wondering: "Why does he think that?"

 1. The domain was aol(something).cz instead of the real true AOL home page.

 2. It was being spread via a hacked/malware infected machine
 So I would just like to remind y'all to make sure you double check what URL you really are at before you go and start typing user ID information on some site with nothing related to where you are trying to go.
