C'mon Opie, lets go phishing

I just saw a hit from someone looking for phishing help.
More specifically, how to belatedly help *do* something about clicking on a phishing site.

Yahoo had some experts there, but I'll give you a little advice.

A phishing site won't,,,,will NOT look the same as your computer screen.
It may even have a different browser than you normally use, different bars and tab pages (I don't use the tab thing).

The main site will also look subtly different.

Most importantly, NEVER click a link from e-mail. Go to your bookmarks, or search for the site to be sure you don't get redirected to a phishing site.
