I received a fraudulent message as SPAM and it contained 
the following url embedded in the email:
https://www.earthlink.net@211.154.171.106/li_pin/verificat
ion/step1_e.htm
When you click on this link, it takes you to a fradulent 
website.  That is a bad thing, but what is worse is that 
IE displays in the url: https://www.earthlink.net which 
leads the user to believe that he is connected securely to 
earthlink when in fact he is connected to 211.154.141.106
This is a major problem and should be addressed somehow.
Thoughts?
