Avoid Fake Websites
Try to avoid visiting fake 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 try and
get 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
to learn how to protect yourself from phishing.
