    I received this email today from the good people at FanBox:

    =======================================
    I noticed that your FanBox account is not protected, despite your sizable earnings of $357.81.

    I strongly recommend that you protect your funds by validating your account immediately.




    If you need assistance, chat with a community expert.

    =======================================

    As it looked like an overt phishing scam right away I decided to do some quick research and indeed it it is:

    Anyway, they must be on another mass e-mailing campaign so I thought I'd let everybody know about it. Also from what I've read don't try to unsubscribe or they will get even more relentless in their attempts to sign you up in what looks to be a voluntary Ponzi scam. These guys even make Afton look like a reputable business by comparison.
