Phishing

What is Phishing?

Phishing scams are typically fraudulent email messages appearing to come from legitimate enterprises (e.g., your university, your Internet service provider, your bank). These messages usually direct you to a spoofed web site and ask you to provide private information (e.g., password, credit card, or other account updates). The perpetrators then use this private information to commit identity theft or collect it and sell it to others for other nefarious purposes.
