    I just noticed "phishing" as being added in 2003. They were using that one in the days of dial-up, pay by the *timeframe* AOL! People would pretend to be employees and ask people for account info, I think as far back as mid-late 90's and it was being called phishing, I think. Someone correct my time frame if I'm wrong.

    Phishing's still being done today, just more sophisticated!
