UPDATE 2: It turns out to appear that Expediamail.com is actually legit. That’s crazy. Apparently a number of coincidences occurred at the same time which made it appear that clicking on the link hosed my computer.
The phukking phishing phags at Expediamail.com got me. At least in the sense that they tricked me into trying to check out my itinerary for my upcoming trip to Las Vegas for next February’s SHOT Show.
They already had my name, my email, my destination, and the dates of my trip. They sent two emails as I had booked two separate “trips” with hotel separate from flight. The links invited me to check my updated travel itineraries. And I totally fell for it.
Fortunately, I don’t think they got anything new from me as I had not actually created an Expedia account when I booked my trip. So I think I’m okay.
It was the best looking scam I’ve seen, and the sites it linked to were top-notch. Jerks.
So beware of Expediamail.com. I can see how folks with Expedia accounts would easily be tricked into logging in, potentially exposing all sorts of useful info to these losers.
And if you’re going to be at the SHOT Show, drop me a line.
UPDATE: I started having issues even reaching the real Expedia site shortly after this. I had problems with two computers where I had played the dumb Expediamail game, but no problems with other computers. Deleting all the Expedia cookies seems to have cleared it up.
