Phishing Scams

What is a Phishing Scam?

A phishing scam is a social engineering scam where the criminal sends an e-mail to someone pretending to be from a trusted company and is seeking personal information (i.e. usernames, password, credit card numbers).

These fraudulent phishing e-mails attempt to make the receiver believe it is from a trusted source by placing a business name in the from section of the e-mail and crafting the message to indicate that personal or financial account information is required for what may seem a legitimate reason.

In some scams they will ask for the information directly. In other scams they ask the person to update their personal information by either replying to the e-mail or by clicking a link that the criminal has made to appear to look like the trusted company's website.
