    This is good. But isn't it just as effective to just block email messages that ask for personal identifiable information on the body of the message regardless of source? All legitimate websites state that they will never ask you for your sensitive information via email, so you would be logical to block any of those kinds of emails even if it did come from a legitimate source.
