    Google have made this phishing quiz to test how well you recognise whether something is legitimate or not...

    Well, I got 5 correct out of 8. These phishing people are extremely crafty and everything looks above board initially.

    If I got these in real life I would not get involved with any of them. If I see anything I'm not sure about I will just delete it straight off. I now only open stuff when I am certain that I know the sender. Maybe I delete the odd genuine message but better that than getting stung. :)

    I agree. I got 7 out of 8. The one I got wrong was one I tagged as phishing, but wasn't.
