phishing attacks against ISPs (also with Google translations)

Paul, please refrain from silly attacks, as your message didn't provide

I've not recently seen an ISP account phish here.  The last one I remember
was circa 2003.  It was a dictionary attack, arriving at my was@ account
(long since rendered useless by spam volume and terminated).

However, I don't save phish/spam anymore.  I used to save everything --
providing many of the examples for http://fraudgallery.com/ -- nowadays,
just daily scan for false positives, report monetary phish to the few
ISPs that actually promptly close down bad actors, and delete the rest.

Good luck, Gadi.
