Hooked on Banking

According to Gartner’s June 23 press release discussing their phishing report:

Approximately 77 percent of online Americans shopped online in the 12 months ended in May 2005, according to Gartner. An estimated 73 percent of respondents regularly logged on to banking accounts and 63 percent paid bills online.

Amazing stats, eh? Much higher than I’d have thought. I’ll assume that “online Americans” really means “online American adults” as I can’t imagine 73% of 10-year olds checking their banking accounts. Then again, kids are pretty up on things…
