MySpace emails: spam or worse?

For about the last two weeks, I have been getting barraged with emails from people wanting to be my friend at MySpace. No, I don’t have a MySpace account. So what is going on? Some kind of spam, or worse?

More than likely they’re phishing, trying to get people’s Myspace passwords. The link contained in the email would go to a dummy page that looks exactly like Myspace’s page, but is hosted somewhere else, and sends someone the login and password.

Why you would want access to a stranger’s Myspace account is unknown to me, though.

Seriously though, you might try reporting this to the MySpace admins.
