    They are trying very hard to log in...what vital information do they hope to obtain?

    I removed my credit card and bank account numbers, as well as my SS number and birth certificate picture from my PM box and albulm folders just to be on the safe side.

    When the bots are trying to set up accounts, more times than not it does seem that they are just using random letters or numbers.

    Like, instead of "Joseph", the bots will usually try to do something oh-so-creative like "dfadsgfdsf" or "342353", which may be why it was attempted.

    I always heard that car forums were the best places to archive personal information like that. I also keep health and dental records, plus a log of my passwords and security question answers on my account.

    Based on past experiences here, they wish to encourage us to buy genuine Canadian hockey jerseys while vacationing at a lovely Indian hotel.

    I'm about to leave you bitches in the dust, since I'm on the verge of collecting around three million dollars from a Nigerian prince who is desperate to funnel his cash out of the country. SO LONG SUCKERS

    Some of the more clever bots actually have a flat file list of first and last names, and pull randomly from each list to use for account details.

    I guess I'm safe until they move onto their "Cartoon Characters" list.
