Google has a phishing quiz. I got 7/8 right. (and only because I'm paranoid and let *no one* scan my email.

I got 7/8 as well, but I got burned on the PDF question. I know that PDFs can contain executable code, but I determined that the message was legit because the sender didn't seem to pretend to be someone they're not, and I'm pretty sure that something specific as a financial activity report of a school, I would expect to get mails about (of course if I had received such an e-mail and I had nothing to do with the school in question, I would not have opened it, but I rolled with the premise).
