mdoneil writes "Indiana University's School of Infomatics professors have published a study that notes that phishing scams may get up to 14 percent response rates (heck I'm lucky if my work email gets that).
This result is in a paper by Drs. Jakobsson and Ratkiewicz of the School. The paper "Designing Ethical Phishing Experiments: A study of (ROT13) rOnl auction query features. is interesting in and of itself, valid and ethical phishing experiments!"
