I would call that a chat phish. A whole world of crime I have so far managed to avoid (because I mostly avoid chatrooms).

Now that I think of it, I used the wrong term. I don't use chatrooms either. That was Yahoo Messenger, which I use to stay in contact with other moderators.

DO NOT CLICK ON THE FOLLOWING LINKS!

I went to that long link in your picture. It first took me to http://toweringamazons.com/temp/index.html and then to http://yahoo-abuse.7h.com/, which asks me to sign into my yahoo account. Who knows what unimaginable thing might happen if I was signed in.

Edited by AdminNWR, : made links unclickable

I should have warned people not to visit that link. Thanks!

Actually, I think you made it clear enough that the link might have been bad. However, I am one of those that would enter a room if someone yells "zombies in room!" I have my own special way of dealing with spywares, viruses, and other internet mines. I'm also curious enough to almost always click on mysterious links. It's the links that I know for sure that are malwares and stuff that I avoid.
