Postbank reports fraud to police

Emerce informs us that Postbank has reported their most recent phishing fraud (April 28) to the police for further investigation.

Whereas in the 'old' banking world, this stuff was usually dealt with by security departments of banks themselves, the 'new' internet world makes this almost impossible. Attacks come from all over the place and a single bank cannot effectively counter-attacks or prevent this. Hence the step to report the crime with the peoples best friend: the police.
