    Fake bank e-mails, or phishing, and stories about ID theft are damaging the potential of using the net for online commerce, say e-business experts.
    Trust in online security is falling as a result. Almost 70% of those asked in a poll said that net firms are not doing enough to protect people.

    The survey of more than 1,000 people reported that 43% were not willing to hand over personal information online.

    It is worrying for shopaholics and firms who want to exploit the net.

    More people are becoming aware of online security issues but they have little confidence that companies are doing enough to counter the threats, said security firm RSA, which carried out the poll.
