One of the most common types of frauds is a scam called “phishing” in which the perpetrator “fishes” for confidential information by fraudulently obtaining and using an individual’s personal or financial information. This is how phishing works:

  • You receive an e-mail that appears to be from a legitimate institution or company.
  • The message asks you to verify personal or confidential information by clicking on a link embedded in the email.
  • The provided link appears to be the Web site of the financial institution or entity. In reality, however, the Web site belongs to the fraudster.
  • Once inside the fraudulent Web site, you may be asked to provide sensitive information such as a password or banking account information.
  • After providing the information, the individuals perpetrating the fraud can begin to access consumer accounts or assume your identity.
