Blocking Fake Banking Emails

Hi guys,

In South Africa we get tons of banking spam emails phishing for users 
account information.

I don't want to send a sample to the list, but the problem is that the 
emails look almost like the real bank emails.

Are there any methods of blocking the fake ones, is this just a big 
problem in S.A. or is everyone around the globe subjected to these?

I'm running the latest spam assassin, with updated rules, and 
MailScanner and most of the emails don't get hit by any of the spam 
assassin rules, so it's not just a matter of bumping up scores.

Any help will be appreciated.
