The Dangers of Phishing : A Reminder

Criminals create e-mails that appear to come from legitimate banks, insurance companies, eBay and so on. Unsuspecting people will click on a web link in the e-mail, which then takes them to a fake web site where they enter their name, password, credit card details etc., unaware that this personal information is going straight to a criminal gang. Although there are safeguards in both the processes that banks use and the e-mail software, many people still fall for these scams.
