Cory Doctorow:

I was tricked by a phone-phisher pretending to be from my bank, and he convinced me to hand over my credit-card number, then did $8,000+ worth of fraud with it before I figured out what happened. And then he tried to do it again, a week later!

You can’t be too careful. I think it’s great that at least some folks share what happened to them. It serves as a warning to us all.
