We all knew it was coming. Below is the full text:
From: Manager Stephan Goldman

Subject: MySpace Password Reset Confirmation!
Hey [incorrect username] ,
Because of the measures taken to provide safety to our clients, your password has been changed.
You can find your new password in attached document.
Attached was a file called “MySpace_document_49792.zip” that recipients would be advised to not touch with a thirty-nine-and-a-half-foot pole. Whatever’s in that ZIP file, you don’t want it. Trust me on this.
Once again, social networking sites are never going to email you a new password, and in general aren’t going to email you files at all.
Who the heck is “Manager Stephan Goldman?”
Anyway, delete this garbage if you receive it, okay?
