How to Report Phishing Emails?
Most email providers have a link on the toolbar to report phishing or spam emails. You simply click on or check the box next to the email in question and then click on the icon in the toolbar that says “report as phishing.”
In the United States, you can also report it on the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) website or by emailing the Anti-Phishing Working Group at firstname.lastname@example.org. APWG is an organization comprised of law enforcement, banking and financial institutions, and security experts that work together to track and prevent cyber crimes. Both the WTG and FTC provide up-to-date information on the latest phishing emails and scams consumers should watch out for.
Report it. Forward phishing emails to email@example.com (an address used by the Anti-Phishing Working Group, which includes ISPs, security vendors, financial institutions, and law enforcement agencies). Let the company or person that was impersonated know about the phishing scheme.
