What is Phishing?
Phishing attacks attempt to steal consumers' personal identity data and financial account information. Social-engineering schemes use 'spoofed' e-mails to lead consumers to counterfeit websites designed to trick recipients into divulging financial data such as credit card numbers, account usernames, passwords and social security numbers. Hijacking brand names of banks, e-retailers and credit card companies, phishers often convince recipients to respond.
Protect Yourself Against Phishing.
Use caution when applying for items via e-mail. Be sure to verify the Internet address and check to see if the site is secure before you enter any personal data.
