According to a report published by CPP (Card Protection Plan Ltd.) more than 420,000 scam emails are sent every hour in the UK.

The recent study from life assistance company CPP estimates that Brits were targeted by 3.7 billion ‘phishing’ emails in the last 12 months alone and a quarter of us admit to falling victim to e-fraudsters, with the average victim losing over £285 each this is costing the British public over £260,000,000 a year.

When you consider that in a CNN article in 2001 a study conducted by IDC predicted that the number of emails sent every day would exceed 36 billion by the year 2005, other research shows that there are actually 62 billion emails sent every day cybercrime in the form of Phishing emails is a massive problem that needs to be tackled and to be taken extremely seriously.
