The company MailFrontier.com has put together a Phishing IQ Test.
Think you can't get caught in the "phishing" net of online fraud? Dive into our Phishing IQ Test and find out if you can avoid the hooks of the online crooks. We've put together 10 suspected fraud emails from our collection of millions-all of them real and all of them actually received by real people like you. Click on the link for each question, review the email, read it, and scroll (sorry, no clicking) over its links. Then tell us: Legitimate or Fraud. When you've done all 10, click "Get Your Score" to find out how well you did. Good luck!Phishing attacks use 'spoofed' e-mails and fraudulent websites designed to fool recipients into divulging personal financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames and passwords, social security numbers, etc. By hijacking the trusted brands of well-known banks, online retailers and credit card companies, phishers are able to convince up to 5% of recipients to respond to them.
MSNBC is reporting that a new study by MailFrontier.com (based on the above test) says fake e-mails fool users 28 percent of the time.
