What is Phishing?

When you receive a fake email or text message with a website created to look like it’s from an authentic company.

What it does:

  • Trick you into giving them information by asking you to update, validate or confirm your account. It is often presented in a manner than seems official and intimidating, to encourage you to take action.
  • Provides cyber criminals with your username and passwords so that they can access your accounts (your online bank account, shopping accounts, etc.) and steal your credit card numbers.
  • Convince you to download Malware

Here is a great link from Microsoft on how to recognize Phishing email, call and SMS messages.
