Decoding the spam: Social networking scams

Quote:
Up until recently, the amount of spam I received had dropped dramatically in the second half of this year, to around 2-3,000 a day. That is, until my brother found Wayn.net, meetyourmessenger.co.uk, and all those other annoying social networking site's.

Don't get me wrong, it's not directly my brothers fault, he's just an edgit that didn't know any better. He received an invite to these site's from friends, you know the one's - they tend to ask for your Messenger username and password, in order to either "see who's blocking you" or "invite your friends". Those that claim to offer a service to see who on your friends list, is blocking you, ask for your messenger credentials, then login as you, and claim to simply see, well, who's blocking you, but is that all they're doing?, actually no.
