What is Phishing?
There have been various methods developed by hackers to steal data via internet network. One of the most common methods is called Phishing or spoofing.

Instructions for Submitting Phishing Email Assuming you use Outlook or Netscape:
1. Create a new mail to email@example.com.
2. Drag and drop the phishing email from your inbox onto this new email message
o In Netscape drop it on the 'attachment' area
3. Do not use "forward" if you can help it, as this approach loses information and requires more manual processing. The exception is when you use the Web interface to outlook: in that case forward is the only solution.
