How many of you have almost fallen victim to one of the oldest and most common fraud scams in the books — a phishing email?
Phishing is the fraudulent practice of sending emails claiming to be from reputable companies.
Fraudsters do this to get recipients to click a link and reveal personal information, like passwords and credit card numbers. Sometimes, they will even install malware on your mobile device or computer, directing you to a fake storefront to pilfer information like bank accounts or create new fraudulent accounts using your identity information.
Phishing scams today have become more sophisticated and personal. We are all busy with life – work, family, commute, and dinner plans, along with keeping up on the latest news cycle. Virtually anyone could be inclined to quickly click on a link stating there is an issue with their recent order.
