Freakonomics Blog » Am I crazy, or is this a great idea for a scam?

OK, even on Vicodin I can spot a Phishing site.  One of my comment on the Freakonomics post tonight on a scam targeting Online Poker (do these fuckwads have no morals?  Is NOTHING sacred?)  

I think it should be legal to shoot these people – just as if they broke in your house to steal your jewelry – because that is exactly what they are, in effect, doing.

A couple of clues here that show this is an unsafe site – first, in the View Source for the page: Hide me from lame browsers Lame Browsers isnt something a professional site would include in the HTML. More telling though is this, also from the source of the page: FullTiltPoker-Video0129-LiveStream.mpg.exe You dont embed videos with an EXE extension. This is funny because they obviously went to a lot of troubel to recreate the CNN site, and they were creative in sending messages during a poker game& but looking at the source code for the web page takes only a couple of seconds and you can tell its just not right.
