Virtually scammed

This is fascinating:  we all get “phishing” spam which tries to fool us into giving up our bank account or PayPal information, allowing scammers to empty our accounts.  It happens all the time nowadays.  But now they’re getting more specific and targeting online multiplayer gamers, trying to dupe them into giving up login information in order to rip off their virtual goods.  Many gamers routinely pay actual money for in-game items like swords, levels, experience, magical items, etc.  People are paying absurd amounts of money for these physically non-existent items (concepts, really) and now they’re a target by scumbag phishers as well.

Say it!
