UK Phishing In US Waters

This is an interesting tidbit from a UK anti-spam company, saying that over half of the phishing e-mails in the UK come from the US.

Considering that, in general, most phishing sites are hosted in hard-to-enforce locations like Eastern Europe, this is a surprising statistic. You'd think with all the law enforcement and technical muscle in the States, it would be hard to pull off a phish here. But such isn't the case, according to ClearMyMail, quoted in Finextra.
