What are Phishing Emails?
Phishing is a term given to a new crime that is rapidly growing on the Internet
Phishing is the use of forged (fake) email messages that claim to be from a company that you
may trust, usually a bank or other financial organisation (E.g. PayPal, Ebay, Natwest, Bank of America etc.).
The Phishing emails will often look exactly like you would expect a legitimate message from your bank to look,
they will use the same colours, logos and form items for you to complete.
The difference is that when you submit your information you will not be sending it to the real company, it will
be sent to a criminal gang who can then use that information to either withdraw money from your account or perform
other criminal acts such as identity theft.
