Another common scam is that of phishing and it has cost victims millions of dollars.

Phishing Scams

Phishing is a contact sport.  The phisher contacts a potential victim via an e-mail message that presents as a legitimate message from common online sales portal.  The victim is then directed to a fake imitation of the portal web page where they enter their private information.

According to eWeek Magazine, phishing has become one of the webs most popular scams:

Since its emergence onto the Internet crime scene about 18 months ago, phishing quickly has become one of the more widespread and profitable forms of online fraud.

In December 2003 there were 116 unique phishing attacks reported to the APWG. In July 2004, there were 1,974 unique attacks—nearly 20 times as many as just seven months earlier.

Experts estimate that somewhere between five and 10 percent of people who receive a phishing e-mail will eventually fall victim to the scam.

A related deception called the mouse-trap will be explored next.
