What is Phishing?

Phishing is a form of fraud designed to steal your identity. It works by using false pretenses to get you to disclose sensitive personal information, such as credit and debit card numbers, account passwords, or Social Security numbers.

One of the most common phishing scams involves sending a fraudulent email that claims to be from a well-known company. Phishing can also be carried out in person, over the phone, through fraudulent pop-up windows, and websites. more

Tips and Advise on how to fight Phishing or Scam

So when you receive any email from bank, confirmed with the bank and check wither it’s a scam or not. I repeat, do not click on any link in the email that look suspicious. When u do that, you will eventually leak your information to the culprit.

There’s a way that I always check whether it’s from the real bank or not. Before you click on the link, you can actually see the real link behind by mouse over or view source. By doing that you can also check whether it’s pointing to the bank that sent you the email or pointing to other pishing website. So when you see a link like paypal, it’s actually bringing you to another website that look exactly the same but it’s not the real bank. So beware.

Another way that you can check is, when you reach the website thru the link in the email, try to login using wrong login name and password, if it’s logged in then you know it’s a pishing scam, if not than it should be safe.

So the safer way is, bookmark you the bank website and every time want to visit, just click on your bookmark =)

Tell your friends or loved one about it if not they will be trapped.

Updates Part II

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
