An email that says "Do not trust email"
"AT&T tells the chronicle that while they did not mention the phishing aspect of the scam in their press release, individual customers were e-mailed and warned about the scam."
I see some problems with AT&T's solution to notification.
1. How can AT&T be sure a spam filter won't interfere with delivery of their notification?
2. How could AT&T be sure that some of it's customers wouldn't decide that of the 2 emails in question that the AT&T email was the bogus one? Particulary when there were no mention of the threat in the press.
3. Sending email is not the solution to bogus email.
