YouTube Service Scam

Seems the scam artists of the Internet are trying a new trick.  After seeing mail from Blizzard, Runescape, and a bunch of other MMO’s, as well as various banking sites, it looks like they’re trying to use the YouTube name now.

YouTube Service has sent you a message:

Don’t click on the fake YouTube links, they lead to “http://russ.vndv.com/impeccable.html”.  I didn’t actually open it, so I’ve no idea what kind of scam they’re running.  Neither did I bother looking up the domain to try to determine which asshole of the Internet this one is.

*Edit* I just checked my junk mail, and found nearly 20 more of these with minor variations in the subject, and some linking to other sites.
