San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 29, 2005
According to Joe Stewart, foreword author and Senior Security Researcher with LURHQ, "I've dealt with law enforcement officials working on the phishing problem, as well as individuals in the private industry, and I can say unequivocally that I have never met anyone so "clued" on the problem as Lance James. I can't think of a better qualified person to write this book."
"I felt this was a necessary book to write since it will shed light on the true threat around identity theft. Some of the larger phishing groups are successfully stealing between 100,000 to 300,000 dollars per month and as they evolve, the numbers will only rise. Phishing is on the rise because it's an easy sport, this book will inform people on how to play the numbers game and lower them significantly. Once you make phishing a difficult sport, you have a chance of winning the battle," says Lance James, author of "Phishing Exposed."
