Phishing scams are rapidly becoming one of the most dangerous online threats. They target all platforms equally and use a technique that technology cannot combat efficiently: social engineering.

That form is of course a trap as no bank would ever ask for such information in such a way.

The criminal behind this is using an online service to send the information back to him (http://www.formbuddy.com/cgi-bin/form.pl)

His username can be found in the page:

I reported this to formbuddy:

Talk about greed!
