The Dangers Of Phishing

By Hannah Marcum

Definition of Phishing:

When someone is phishing, they are trying to steal your personal information.

Things the phishers steal:

-Bank information

-Passwords

-Credit cards

-Social security numbers

-Your address

-You email contacts

What to look out for:

-Look out for links in the email.

-Look at the address of the person sending you the email.

-Hover above any link before you click it to see what website you are actually being sent to.

-Make sure the email isn't saying "Dear important client." If you were that important to them they would say your name.

-Just because they have the company's logo does not mean they are actually part of that company.
