When you are pointed to a malicious and illegitimate website by redirecting the legitimate URL. Even if the URL is entered correctly, it can still be redirected to a fake website.

- Convince you that the site is real and legitimate by looking almost identical to the actual site down to the smallest details. You may even enter your personal information and unknowingly give it to someone with malicious intent.
- Convince you to download Malware.
