Phishing is a fraud technique in which someone poses as a trusted agency or individual with the goal of obtaining confidential information. This information can be used for identity theft or to gain access to financial resources. This is often done through e-mail, social media or communication apps. Fraudsters may also set up fake websites that look like legitimate sites in order to trick people into entering their login information.

It is important to always be critical when receiving unexpected messages or e-mails. Always check the URL of the website where you enter your information and be careful when sharing personal information. When in doubt, it is advisable to contact the alleged sender directly through a reliable channel to verify the authenticity of the message.
