Carnegie Mellon University researchers in Pittsburgh, have developed an online game to help people learn about phishing schemes. It features a fish named Anti-Phishing Phil. "The game was developed to help raise awareness about phishing attacks, in which spam e-mails that appear to come from a legitimate bank or retail organization try to lure the recipient into entering personal or financial information into a fraudulent Web site, where it can be stolen and used in identity theft." There are prizes such as $100 gift cards to Amazon.com.
