Phishing attacks

I have been recently witnessing a lot of phishing attacks, in particular email messages from what appears to be legitimate sites such as banks and classified types of sites etc. showing links with correct text but href pointing to phishing sites which often hosted on free or even paid hosts.

how to spot phishing attacks you ask?
sometimes it's simpler then others but exercise common sense and caution when receiving emails that you are not expecting to arrive, and even those you expect, inspect them carefully.

I have several examples but it may be safer not to post them for now.
