Report Phishing

Most companies have information on their Web sites about how you can report fraud. Every phishy email or spoofed URL you report helps to reduce the odds that some other consumer will be swindled.

The Federal Government's United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) compiles a list of phishing emails and spoofed Web sites. To help the government keep track of phishing attacks forward any phishy emails you receive to phishing-report@us-cert.gov.

The Anti Phishing Working Group, an organization of more than 2,600 e-merchants, law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders, also compiles a repository of scam emails and Web sites. To add any emails you receive to their list forward them to reportphishing@antiphishing.org.
