What it is

  • “Phishing” is simply a play on the word “fishing.”
  • Phishing has been around since 1996 and is rapidly becoming more common and sophisticated.
  • This form of cybercrime is growing too fast for the police or courts to handle it.

How it works

  • “Phishers” drop enticing email lures into the sea of internet users, hoping to hook your…

    • Credit card information
    • Bank account numbers
    • And other personal information
  • Then they exploit whatever information they can to commit fraud in your name; they can steal your identity, empty your bank accounts, and more.
