Is that ISP legitimate?

Phishy Phree Sites

Be safe online. There are phony web sites out there that use a technique called phishing to entice unknowing customers into handing over your social security number or credit card information. These web sites usually start as email from an ISP provider that promises you great sign up rates, or even free service. Most of them use spellings like PHREE. If you click on the links in the email, you're taken to a phake web site that looks official. If you have any questions about an ISP service, call them before signing up. Many phishing sites don't have phone numbers listed.
