    I get a phishing email every couple of days or so, which I just laugh at and delete. But for less experienced folks, it poses a real hazard. So, I recommend that you talk to your friends and family, and let them know about phishing and not to respond to them.

    Here is a phishing email I got this week:

    I constantly get those kinds of emails, which Thunderbird recognizes as junk and treats them accordingly. HOWEVER, Zonealarm Antivirus finds 'phishbank. * .html" files which it can't seem to get rid of. AdAware can't, either. Last time I had to go to Pandasoftware and do the online scan to delete them.
