Phishing

Phishing is when a person sends a mass email to a bunch of people trying to get your personal information. It looks real and it could also have a link to a website that asks you to fill out information.

Retail/Auction

It's when you buy something that you paid for and that you don't get because they were just trying to hook you into buying it. They might also send you something that is different then what you ordered.
