Frequently Asked Questions

  • I receive a lot of spam and phishing e-mails. Why?
  • Try to avoid posting e-mail addresses on Web pages or subscribing to untrusted mailing lists. Spammers harvest the Web using crawlers to collect e-mail addresses. Some researchers prefer to mask e-mail addresses by inserting them as images in Web pages rather than plain text.
  • How can I report the phishing e-mails I've received?
  • You can report phishing e-mails at several portals—for instance, phishing-report@us-cert.gov, reportphishing@antiphishing.org, and pirt@castlecops.com.
  • I think I'm a victim of electronic identity theft. What should I do?
