    I suck at it, thats all I know. Some are easy when its an obvious IP in the address, but how do I know Citibanking.net is not real? I don't use citibank, how would I know their actual URL is citibank.com?

    Its a good concept, but its too childish and tries to simplify rooting out phishing sites to the point that it makes it difficult to do so.

    I like the idea, most of my few failures came down to not knowing the corporations involved also.

    If you dont use citybank website, you'd be damn foolish to go logging into it without thinking ? id you DO use citybank, you would know the domain.
