Whom to notify about criminal attempt e-mail



I just got one of those notorious e-mails, purportedly from the bank, telling me to use a link to go to a web site where I am supposed to "confirm" my bank information for security purposes.

I thought I would like to give a copy of it to some law enforcement authorities, but I don't know who handles such things.

Does anyone know? (I presume it would be different for Americans than for UK or OZ.)

Personally I just delete them Scholar on outlook express, but my other other provider has a report spam button.

Consider them as junk mail you receive in normal postal deliveries and throw them in the trash.

Indeed, what Dot said...

If it was likely it was aimed personally at you, and no one else, it'd be worth persuing, but lets be honest, it went to thousands of people, if not more...

You could check somewhere like http://www.phishtank.com but I'd guess it's been listed there already...

Save your time and energy for more important tasks...!
