Warning: Twitter Scam Spreading ... Again
February 26, 2010

Twitter phishing scam that Mashable reported on last month has re-emerged today. The Mashable writer was greeted by a direct message saying “you’re on this vid” with a link. After clicking on it, he was on a Web site that looks just like Twitter.

The best way to avoid this scam is to avoid visiting the link, and to not provide your Twitter username and password on sites that look suspicious. If you think you have fallen prey, change your password immediately.
