What is Phishing?
Phishing is the fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords, credit card numbers, and other personal information. These emails can look like emails from your bank, package delivery alerts, invoices from vendors you do business with, or IRS notifications. They look genuine and post some urgency in the message to make you take action immediately.
