I got one to, which I posted in the »Recent Phishing Attempt thread. Actually I posted a couple of these types of emails in there.

Looks like your thread on phishing has been deleted. What's the reason for that?

Surprised the email from Cogeco support got through Cogeco's filters.

Sounds like some of you opened the link? Not a good idea!

Maybe Cogeco_Aaron deleted it?

Anyway I got another email of course I delete them after reporting them.
I wonder why they are pretending to be Cogeco. Darn spammers.

Hey guys, we asked for the thread to be removed because upon further reflection, we're worried that if we start disavowing certain phishing attempts and miss others, people might find themselves compromised because they thought it was legitimate.

We want our clients to be confident of one thing, we will never ask by email to confirm any personal data.

In the past, we have never asked for other threads to be removed (to the best of my knowledge) and we do not have the desire to do so in the future.

We just want to make sure people stay secure.

Thanks for your understanding

edit: "confirm certain of their personal data" replaced with "confirm any personal data".
