Getting back to the Phishers

The Christian Science Monitor offers some excellent tips on avoiding online swindles.

I liked this one among them:




If you're really unsure, here's a neat little trick. Enter a phony username and
password. If it's a real site, it will tell you that you've entered incorrect
info. A phishing site will make it look as if you've logged in successfully.

It is a simple way to identify a phishing site. Over and above, it also gives the satisfaction of putting one over these schemers. Just imagine these defraud artistes, going to the original site and trying to log in. If it is possible, all of us should deliberately visit their phishing sites and log in giving false user names. Make them earn their money!
