Phishing Information

Home » Phishing Information

According to Webopedia.com, phishing is:

"...the act of sending an e-mail to a user falsely claiming to be an established legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam the user into surrendering private information that will be used for identity theft. The e-mail directs the user to visit a Web site where they are asked to update personal information, such as passwords and credit card, social security, and bank account numbers, that the legitimate organization already has. The Web site, however, is bogus and set up only to steal the user?s information..." This new type of fraud is proliferating very quickly, and Network Advocates is working with a number of entities, including the Anti-Phishing Working Group to prevent our customers from being affected.
