I usually forward the Phishing e-mails to spoof@ebay.com or
spoof@paypal.com as appropriate and I get the routine form letter back
saying "we will investigate".

Does anyone know if these organizations really try to investigate and
prosecute the phishers? Is there any track record of sucessful
shutdowns and prosecutions?

Or is it just good public relations for them to feign concern for
their clients, but not really do anything...
