The main object of this paper is to analyse the challenge of internet regulation to combat phishing. The paper analyses the concept and prevalence of phishing victimization issues and the role of internet. The paper suggests a multilevel action plan to help and empower the victims of phishing. The paper also analyses the plan in international cyber forensic scenario to determine the challenge of phishing in internet regulation.
