I do surveys for one of those on-line places and today I had a link from them for this place: http://friendmagnet.com.au/
In case the link only works within Australia and to save people the trouble of clicking it. "Friend Magnet" (Strange name, I know) claims we can win loads of prizes by playing games, but we have to log in with our Windows Live ID. That's our MSN log in name AND password.
I'm no newbie to the internet, so that immediately rings alarm bells for me because the site is not an extension of MSN and does not appear to be in any way affiliated with Microsoft other than claiming to be "copyright 2008 ninemsn all rights reserved".
Every other Nine MSN website I've used has nine msn in the address bar, but this site doesn't.
It may be legitimate, but I'm not going to find out if they're just phishing for people's log-in details.
