FYI: New cyber-crime... FF mile theft via "phishing"


Interesting article today from the MSNBC Travel site on the issue of potential cyber theft of your FFP miles via online phishing attempts..

A good re-iterated warning- and one that applies to not just your FFP accounts-- to be wary and altet to any attempt to get you to disclose personal or other private information to unsolicited email offers.
