Lightbulb Phishing IQ Test

Quote:
Chances are that in the past week you've received an e-mail in your inbox that pretends to be from your bank, e-commerce vendor, or other on-line site. Hopefully you've realized that many times this e-mail is fake - a phishing e-mail. The sender (phisher) of these fake e-mails wants you to click on the link in the e-mail and go to a phishing Web site - which will look just like the Web site of the company being phished. Once on the phishers Web site they hope to obtain your account, financial, credit and even identity information. Of course not every e-mail you receive is a phish. In fact you should expect your bank or e-commerce vendor to send you legitimate e-mail. But how can you tell the difference? Well that's what the Phishing IQ test is all about - give it a try.
I thought this was useful. Searched the forum and the link didnt come up. Hope this is not a repost. Its a small test of 10 questions and tests your ability to detect an original from a fake (something we all pride ourselves in doing). Try it, and share it!

I got 9 out of 10. The IRS one was damn good, and only commonsense helped me out there!
Excellent test- everyone who's online should take it!

This one is also very good. Its essentially just 5 questions, but a good one nonetheless. Teaches the importance of using an up to date browser.
