Phishing

No, we didn't spell it incorrectly, but that is exactly what it is - someone "fishing" for your details!

Phishing is one of the fastest growing scams on the internet. For example: Someone sends you an email pretending to be from a bank or other financial institution and advises you that the database holding your details has been compromised and that if you wish to keep your account active you must confirm your details for them. They "conveniently" provide a link for that purpose.

Whatever you do, do not click on the link!!

Banks and other financial institutions will never ask for your details in this manner. As convincing as the email or website may appear - they may even provide some legitimate links within their ruse - never provide your details to any page reached by such a link.

The only safe way to reach your financial institution on the Net is by typing in the URL yourself and ensuring that you reach the "real" target.
