No incentive to close phishing

With eBay, it's all about profit. They will just blame the consumer for falling for phishing attacks.

I remember once telling Lloyds that I have received a text message that was claiming to be from Lloyds. I don't bank with them. They just said "ignore it". There seems to be no incentive for big companies to do anything about them. The "crime fighting" authorities don't want to investigate because there is no incentive for them to, unlike the way they do everything to fight piracy.
