joe betty sterkx's 'horrible vacation'

click picture to enlarge====
now here is an interesting phishing email the type of which we havent seen before.

of course we've heard of joe betty sterkx -- she is a prominent central louisiana real estate agent -- although to our knowledge and memory, we've never corresponded with her before -- so why our email address is in her address book is a mystery.

anyway, what likely happened is that someone hacked into her email account by guessing or brute forcing her password and sent out this email probably to everyone in her address book.

according to the email header, the originating ip number of: originates in the united states.

this is a good time for her and you (and us) to change your email (and other account) password(s).
