A new study is claiming that fear of phishing scams means that people are doing less shopping and banking online. Of course, the study was done by asking people if they were less likely to shop or bank online due to fear of phishing. It didn't actually check to see what they're actually doing. Furthermore, despite all the talk about phishing scams, I wonder how many people actually know what phishing is. Phishing, by itself, shouldn't scare anyone off from shopping or banking online, assuming the person doing the shopping or banking knows enough to go to sites directly, rather than clicking randomly from an email.
