Online scammers go spear-phishin'

| | | | | | | | | |

CNET News.com shares a New York Times story reports that people in many other countries, including the United States (U.S.), have reason to feel queasy as well, say Internet security specialists and government agencies that monitor cyberfraud. Over the last few years, enticing offers wearing the friendly guise of e-mail solicitations have been at the center of well-publicized frauds known as "phishing," in which con artists troll online for valuable personal and financial information. In September, the Anti-Phishing Working Group, a coalition of corporate and law enforcement groups that track identity theft and other online crimes, said it had received more than 13,000 unique reports of phishing schemes in that month alone, up from nearly 7,000 in the month of October last year.
