Gmail invites..

Anybody got any? I've got 1 gmail account that I set up today, thru an invite thru a friend..anybody got 1 invite they can spare so I can set up 1 additional account?

if so, drop the invite to this other address of mine, [email protected]



I really like the gmail so far..seems quick, i was able to import my address book with no problems, so IM gonna give it try for awhile and see how it goes.

Thanks

yeah i just set this one up..gonna see how it works for awhile..it seems to be all the rage lately.

Gmail is google's new web-based email, similar to yahoo or hotmail..gives you 1 Gig of storage, as opposed to the 100 MG that yahoo gives. but you cant just sign up for it yet, you have to be invited by a current gmail user. and I guess you have to wait till gmail gives you the option for periodic invites of friends...cant just sign up anytime yet, as its still in beta.

Scammers have caught on to the allure of Gmail and are using the Google e-mail service for a "phishing" scam to harvest e-mail addresses and passwords.

For the fashion-conscious techie, a Gmail account seems to be a must-have status symbol. The free service, which is not yet widely available, has even provoked people to try to sell their Gmail addresses on eBay.

Phishing schemes commonly involve e-mail requests for information that seem to be from trusted sources such as eBay or Citibank. In this case, the scammers send the phishing e-mail to existing holders of Gmail accounts, offering them the opportunity to invite three or six of their friends to join Gmail. The body of the e-mail reads "I found this e-mail very weird."

It continues to read: "The Gmail Team is proud to announce that we are offering Gmail free invitation packages to the existing Gmail account holders. By now you probably know the key ways in which Gmail differs from traditional webmail services. Searching instead of filing. A free gigabyte of storage. Messages displayed in context as conversations. Just fill in the form below to claim your free invitation package."

The "Gmail Team" asks users to give away their Gmail addresses and passwords to get the invites.

The e-mails are currently able to make their way through Gmail's spam filters, but the Gmail fraternity is fighting back by publicizing the con on messageboards and in forums.

For those account holders genuinely given Gmail invites to hand out by Google, a click is all it takes to get a friend onboard. A message saying "You have 6 Gmail invitations. Invite a friend to join Gmail!" appears in the user's status bar, for example.

Why the scammers are after the usernames and passwords is, as yet, unclear. One possibility is to use the accounts to send spam. Another is the potential to search though the e-mail messages for any financial details left lying around in e-mails. With up to a gigabyte of storage per account, that's a lot of e-mail to trawl though.
