Although we all see lots of attempts at phishing and it gets lots of press coverage, it is very small compared to regular credit card and bank fraud which happens all the time. According to a study which I recently read (I wish I could remember where) phishing accounts for less than 1-2% of all banking and credit card fraud in the US.
