How to Protect Against Phishing What Is Phishing?
Phishing is the illegal attempt to mislead consumers into providing personal or financial information, including account numbers, passwords and Social Security numbers, via email or through fraudulent Web sites. The most frequent phishing attacks occur through email disguised to appear as though it came from a reputable financial institution or company. Most phishing attempts urge you to update or validate your account information, typically through a link in an email directing you to a fake Web site that appears to be legitimate.
How To Spot a Phishing Attack
There are many phishing attacks active on the Internet. Here are a few of their lines and lures: An email contains an “urgent” or “shocking” tone requesting your immediate action on an account-related matter. Phishers frequently succeed by getting consumers to act quickly without thinking. An email is sent from a user falsely claiming to be a legitimate company with an attachment. An unsolicited email attachment more than likely contains a virus. Do not open it. A pop-up window appears from a user falsely claiming to be a legitimate company’s Web site asking for personal information.
