A reader recently submitted for review a new phish attempt which asks readers to download the "new Monster Job Seeker Tool".  The email looks authentic, as the HTML source code is pulling images from monster.com, as well as having links to other monster.com pages, however the download does not come from monster.com.  The download software link pulls the download from monster-freesoftware.com.  Of course, what is downloaded is not something monster.com would approve of.

I have sent a copy of the email to abuse@monster.com for their records as well.
