In this article, the author speculates on how phishing will develop, how organizations such as banks will attempt to control it, and whether they have any hope of being successful. Phishing is now an accepted fact of life for many Internet users. Most of the emails that they receive are clearly from friends or business contacts, or clearly fraudulent. But there are a few, just a few, that might just be genuine, and there will always be a small percentage of users who will follow the link sent them in the email, and connect to what they think is their bank, and give the phishers their reward.
