What happened:
I received a PM from this user indicating he replied to my message.  He included a URL that looked like a Bitcointalk URL, but in reality points to a lookalike site:

http://detallesfalleros.com/index/?u=mdude77&r=789369

Which of course then prompts me for my logon credentials.

hi mdude77

i've replied to you:

hi mdude77

i've replied to you:

 <----DO NOT CLICK ON THIS

Thanks.

Additional Notes:
This user appears to have been around for a while.  That probably means his account has been compromised or sold.

You can see the raw text he sent me by quoting me.  It uses an iurl tag, which I've not seen before.

Did you post negative trust against the account?

I've also just came across a phishing attempt from user AIRBOU

It was the same format as OP.
Directed me to a forum link that requested me to log in again.
I then replied warning him of his crappy attempt and that red ink will be coming his way.

His reply:
Who are you and what are you talking about?
