Phishing E-Mail Fraud Becoming Epidemic
“Phishing is reaching epidemic proportions. The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG), a vendor consortium trying to address the problem, received reports of more than 1,100 unique phishing campaigns in April, a 178 percent increase from the previous month and a 4,000 percent increase from November 2003.”
This is a very serious problem and one that not enough people are aware of.

I was phished today with a spoofed email from Citibank, my MasterCard company. It was very deceiving, down to the Citicard logo and the copyright.
I reported it to Citibank and http://www.antiphishing.org/index.html
I feel bad for the trusting people who might be taken by this scam.
