For the Record

In a continuation of a previous For the Record, here's another possible phishing scam that may (might?) not have occurred to you: 

45 record

The latest status game to hit the facebook scene (borrowed verbatim from a friend's page): 

"What is your royal wedding guest name? Start with Lord or Lady. Your first name is one of your grandparents' names. Your surname is the name of your first pet. Your feifdom is "of" followed by the name of the street you grew up on." 

Sounds innocuous and a bit fun, right? It's exactly the type of thing to tempt me, considering my love for British history. However, consider that at least two of the "answers" for this are also the answers for common security questions. First pet and the street you grew up on are both questions I've seen as possible security questions. I realize not everyone chooses these particular ones, but some people do. Consider this if/when you decide to copy and repost this one. 

*Disclaimer: I'm not saying this definitely IS a phishing scam. This is just my observation. Take it or leave it.
