One of the more common types of email fraud is “PHISHING”: the practice of sending a phony email message. Such phony emails appear legitimate, and often include the company’s logo.
But they’re actually from criminals who send thousands of emails at a time to random addresses. These criminals are trying to entice you to visit a phony website and provide personal and confidential information, such as online IDs and passcodes, social security numbers, and account numbers.
Spotting phony email messages is not easy. Whether, they may ask you to reply directly, or provide a link that takes you to a website that appears to be “Internet Banker”, beware it is not. These phony email messages want you to provide sensitive personal, financial, or account information.
