Imagine this scenario. You get an email that appears to be from your bank. You open it and read a message riddled with misspelled words that direct you to “click the link below.” You click on the link and are taken to a page that looks almost exactly like the website you’re used to visiting.
This type of scam is what’s known as phishing, and hopefully, it’s never happened to you. Or, if it has, hopefully you recognized the warning signs and knew to stay away. Unfortunately, many people don’t recognize those signs, and fall prey to a particularly insidious form of fraud that can be very damaging to your finances.
To help you understand more about what phishing is, and how you can protect your finances from it, we have prepared a special infographic. It lists some of the common ways hackers try to “phish” for your personal information and provides some common-sense rules that will help increase your cybersecurity.
