I got a ton of notecards yesterday

from my groups ….. basicly warnings about a *pretend* xstreet site that is actually phishing for your credit info and using it. Let me paste some info for you.

There is a website that presents itself like xStreet but is really nothing more than a phishing scam for your credit card information.

The website http://virtualget.net/ lists Second Life items for sale on their site.   These listings are all faked using xStreet to create their fake listings.   They ask you for your credit card information and will not deliver the items to you.

Unlike most scam warnings that are sent out, this is real. Please keep your credit card information safe.

For details on this scam check out:
