Reporting Phishing Emails to Banks

After receiving a couple of lazy phishing emails about a non-existing Royal Bank of Scotland account, I wanted to report it to RBS. Being a good global citizen and all. Notifying their abuse team and whatnot. After spending the better part of 5 minutes querying whois, RIPEstat and their website, I gave up while exclaiming “fuck it”.

If companies make it deliberately hard to get a proper abuse contact to report such behavior, I’m just not going to bother to deal with it.
