Comment Re:Do a lot of people still get phished? (Score 1) 94

Some information... Yes there are a lot of people still get phished out there..

In 2006 eight people were arrested by Japanese police on suspicion of phishing fraud by creating bogus Yahoo Japan Web sites, netting themselves 100 million yen ($870 thousand USD).

AOL reinforced its efforts against phishing in early 2006 with three lawsuits seeking a total of $18 million USD under the 2005 amendments to the Virginia Computer Crimes Act.

The unfacts, did we have them, are too imprecisely few to warrant our certitude.

Working...
