I have to admit, the phishing scammers that hit 100 Wall Street companies are clever ones. These crooks didn't just send out fake email willy-nilly. Now a hacker team is calling itself FIN4 and could be going after your computer.

You know how even some of the more clever phishing scams are easy to spot? FIN4 "innovates" by actually understanding their target before attacking.

Their objective was to trick their target into downloading snoopware that let would let hackers get an inside look at what stocks to buy.

Bonus tip: Three scams that can fool anybody.

To do that, they developed a pitch that's so clever it's almost scary.
