Phishing never was Old!
Phishing is as effective as it was years back. I remember the best tactic to distract the email users is to email them about that huge amount of money they are going to recieve. and once they share their bank details, all is gone!!

Re: Not to think...
I always knew that history is repeating itself. However, I would never think that it can be the case with phishing. Not so long ago I bought a brilliant research paper from place4papers.com, the best paper writing service I ever used.

Re: Creating a bank account with an online bill as a proof of identity???
It doesn't take much to open a bank acct, and a utility bill is one of the "proofs of identity" that's accepted by almost all of them....

Re: Not to think...
One thing about phishing -- it works. Almost all of the recent major breaches we've reported have started with some element of phishing -- 1 or 2 people fooled into giving away their credentials or clicking on a link. And the resources devoted to finding and fooling those particular individuals that hold the keys is impressive. A criminal may know everything there is to know about an admin or an IT person who has access to the credentials they want.

Creating a bank account with an online bill as a proof of identity???
"They can potentially use these bills in the money laundering process such as in creating a bank account in someone else's name and using the online bill as proof of identity."

I really hope that bank regulations do not allow for this.

And if you thought that paying with a personal check is getting outdated - think again.

Re: Not to think...
I can remembver when my 20-something sat on my lap while I was sending emails on my desktop, looking into a big blocky CRT screen.  Her phone is never off today. I can only imagine what the world will be like for your kiddos...

@Marilyn - You mentioned tweenies, heck my 6 and 4 year olds play with my phone maybe as much as I do. And that includes apps and the internet (youtube, mainly). Either way, the time has indeed come.

@D.M. Romano Yes, I think the time has come that kind of preschool education.

As for Robot & Frank, @dak3,that's a new one for me! I'll put it on my watch list!

I'll tell you what, an internet safety "children's book" is a hot idea. Matter of fact, I'm getting on that ASAP!
