    This came in today's email and Avast and Earthlink failed to declare it SPAM

    I looked for a way to forward it to either Avast or McAfee and found it is not simple to find a forwarding address for stuff like this. You'd think they would be interested, especially when their name is involved. I don't think reporting stuff like this should require hours of searching for the right address or a website page with box after box to fill.

    fax,

    Thanks for the link.

    I saw this and decided it was not relevant.

    1) I am not a McAfee user. They enter into the picture because someone is posing as McAfee in the phishing email I think they should see. They have the resources to track down the phisher.

    2) I have no idea if it would have been caught by their AV. I was their customer years ago and their attitude towards me sent me elsewhere.

    I was just trying to be a good web citizen and stop the phishers.

    Do you know the e-mail address you cite? If not, I think I will let this drop since I have few supportive feelings for McAfee.

    thanks,
