I've Been Phished........through TWITTER

I learn everything the hard way! I've been Phished~

My apologies to anyone that has been Phished because of
my naivety. I received a simple email attached to a friend
of mine from here on Active Rain.

It seems that there is a new Phishing Scam being propagated on TWITTER. I am new at TWITTER
and am just learning the ropes to the SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS and am obviously a bit too trusting.

Wikipedia defines phishing as "the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames,
passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication." We've identified
a phishing scam directed at Twitter users and we don't want you to get tricked into giving your password to a scammer.

I'm not sure what to do now but if you have any suggestions I would appreciate it!  Should I change all my passwords everywhere?


OMG, I don't know why I fell for it. Thanks for any help.

Later in the rain~Deb
