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 ebay.co.uk or wherever, but goes to some
totally unknown site. At which point I am pretty sure it's fraudulent
