Anti-Phishing Working Group

Everone should be aware of these types of scams. This site offers advice and a way to report scams.

Anti-Phishing Working Group: "What is Phishing?
Phishing attacks use 'spoofed' e-mails and fraudulent websites designed to fool recipients into divulging personal financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames and passwords, social security numbers, etc. By hijacking the trusted brands of well-known banks, online retailers and credit card companies, phishers are able to convince up to 5% of recipients to respond to them."
