Phishing – Scamming
emails and texts.
- Forward phishing emails to email@example.com – and to the organization impersonated in the email. Your report is most effective when you include the full email header, but most email programs hide this information. To ensure the header is included, search the name of your email service with “full email header” into your favorite search engine.
- File a report with the Federal Trade Commission at FTC.gov/complaint.
- Visit Identitytheft.gov. Victims of phishing could become victims of identity theft; there are steps you can take to minimize your risk.
- You can also report phishing email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Anti-Phishing Working Group – which includes ISPs, security vendors, financial institutions and law enforcement agencies – uses these reports to fight phishing.
