Microsoft has recently kicked off an ad campaign to show how easy people can be scammed.  The intent is to show you anyone is susceptible, even in person, and should protect themselves online as well by using IE8.

To prove how vulnerable your personal information is, Internet Explorer 8 recreated notorious internet scams–live, off the web– in the most street-smart city in world: New York. Watch what happened.

This campaign currently has two commercials that are running.
