Perfect Storm for Phishing

The Government’s cavalier handling of our personal data is now well publicised. What mystifies me is what’s keeping the phishing scammers from taking advantage of it. I haven’t yet seen any emails purporting to be from the Government trying to get people to register to protect their details.

It’s just a matter of time before some scammer realises that they don’t need the HMRC discs, just enough people who are so worried about the HMRC scandal that they don’t think straight when reading about a way to protect their personal information.
