It is nice that the new web site for PhishNet (link in story)
indicates that a person should report any phishing to their credit
card company and also (through a link on the site) to file a complaint
with the "Internet Crime Complaint Center". But I have read some real
horror stories of what people have to go through to clear up their
credit histories after their names, etc. have been "stolen" (phished)
which makes me think that these corporations and law enforcement
agencies should also make it easier for you to clear up the mess
created as well as try to find the perpetrators of the crime!
