I'm sure I'll get caught now...

I stick with ancient e-mail software that doesn't let ne click on links. 
That doesn't attempt to decode/dsipaly html. And which certaily doesn't 
run executable programs (in any language). 

I am less likely to get caught by something like this because I will spot 
that the link doesn't go to or wherever, but goes to some 
totally unknown site. At which point I am pretty sure it's fraudulent
