Google Talks About Protection From Phishing and Scams [googleblog.blogspot.com]
Spammers attempt to reach users by generating hundreds of webpages and sending out a flood of spam emails, sometimes even buying advertisements on reputable websites. Their sites also target other popular Internet companies. They may include family photos pilfered from another site or a picture of a check they supposedly received. Spammers use a wide range of techniques that try to slip past automatic filters to get to you. At Google, we work hard to protect users from these schemes by using a combination of automated and manual tools that remove them from our search index and ad network. However, scams target many companies and appear in various places around the web, so we all need to work cooperatively. Google collaborates with various government and non-governmental consumer protection agencies, such as the Federal Trade Commission, that are investigating these types of schemes further.

It is good that socially influential companies like Google are reiterating the importance of being "on guard" these days. I attended TechRepublic's recent Webcast, "Profile of the World's Top Hackers," that presented compelling reasons why any company or individual can never be too cautious these days.
