Yahoo Australia targeted by adult dating scam

Media portal Yahoo has again become a target for phishers, with a scam email seeking to access Australian customer banking details under the pretence of hiring chat room moderators for an adult dating service doing the rounds.

A copy of the e-mail sighted by ZDNet Australia says that Yahoo Personals adult-oriented After Dark service will shortly be launching a moderated chat room service as part of an effort to promote a range of "IP sex toys", and wants to hire Australians to moderate the channel overnight in the US.
