Avoiding Phishing Websites
Try to avoid visiting phishing websites that imitate sites of well-known organisations. These are purposely setup to collect sensitive information from visitors, such personal information, usernames and passwords, in a fraudulent manner. This type of activity is notorious, and is known as phishing.
Criminals use different techniques to entice you to submit your personal information online. Legitimate shops, banks and financial institutions never ask their clients for passwords or personal information via email. If you receive an email asking for your password or other information, or if the email provides a link that brings you to a webpage for login, then it is almost certainly a phishing email. Handle your username and password, and personal information with extra care, and constantly check for recent phishing attacks.
