Electric bill online scam?

Posted by D on April 5, 2011, 12:08 pm

I may be way off on this but something is fishy. I got an official looking email with a link
to pay my electric bill online, the link led to this website

The site looks totally official and has links to the real CFE site, which has this as
their website address

See how the top (fake?) address has the gob part first ( and the
official site has the gob after cfe ( Something not right there.

Also the email is from - CFE Pagos Online - Who the hell is

Another thing is when I clicked on the link in the email I saw a myspace web address
quickly flash in the status bar before the "fake" site came up.

I could be completely wrong on this but thought I would share anyway. If it is a phishing
site its a damn good job of faking a real site.
