However, have just received two emails puporting to come from American Airlines telling me that my ticket is now available ... with the innocuous link "download details".
How stupid do the scammers/phishers think i am?
I live in Australia and, while might be elderly - methinks i might remember if i had any interest; or indeed HAD booked a ticket on an airline.
What bothered me was the intimation that my credit/debit card had been already debited.
I do not trust the internet, my card No's might be known to those with whom i have had no transactions.
Have contacted the bank (initially by phone) to say that there is no way that any transactions from "American Airlines" have my authorisation - and they also suggested that i 'forward' the emails.
