    Posting your e mail address out loud should add another few hundred SPAM messages!

  3. Just what I was thinking.

    I hope you have better luck than dac8555 has had getting this straightened out with IB.

    I can't believe you fell for a phishing scheme, I thought the entire world knew to stay away from them.

  6. Did you have Norton 2007 with fraud monitoring on?
     
  7. What, I wasn't supposed to cooperate? I couldn't get it to work so I called the customer service number provided. The nice man with an accent asked a few simple questions, which I answered. He quickly said "thanks pal" and that my account was just updated. Nice fella.

    I am shame to admit I diged the email out from from the spam pile, the email filter did its job this time, because I was hot on IB IPO.

    Wait, did I understand correctly? You typed all your information in that page? How long until you changed it? Anything bad happened?
