They'll also send (very official looking) e-mails from your credit card company, bank, cable company, etc. asking for information with a warning (e.g. "your account will be closed immediately if you do no respond"). Never, never, never fall for any such e-mail, regardless who the sender is. Call your vendor and ask if you aren't sure.
