Cybercriminals use phishing as an attempt to steal your money, or your identity, by getting you to reveal personal information like credit card numbers, bank information, or passwords and pretending to be someone you know or a reputable company. They send a fake message, which can includes messages such as “We owe you money” or “Act now to avoid high charges.”. Anything that will attract your attention. The message will contains a link to a phishing website and as soon as you click on it, you will be exposed. It is best to hover over the email address to confirm that the address makes sense. NEVER CLICK ON A LINK that you do not feel is safe.
