Phishing attacks are an epidemic:
don't be a victim!
Are phishing scams real? Have you heard about many posts or tweets about phishing attacks or phishing scams, If yes then you might have also received an email, message pop-up, call or suspicious link for the same.
So what is phishing? Phishing is a social engineering attack that is used to steal your money, private information, credit card numbers, bank information and passwords etc.
Phishing attacks are on the rise, and there are a few things you can do to protect yourself! First, be aware of the signs of a phishing attack. Watch for emails that contain typos or grammatical errors, or that come from an unfamiliar sender. If an email looks suspicious, don't click on any links or open any attachments.
It could be difficult to detect, as attackers will often spoof legitimate websites or use convincing email addresses and logos. It is important to be cautious when clicking on links or opening attachments from unknown sources.
Let's see an example of a recent phishing advertisement of winning an iPad pro to attract and trap you!
This picture shows a perfect example of a phishing attack.
As you can see in the image when opening a suspicious free gift link or attention-grabbing link it opens into this clone page made by an attacker.
The page will attract you by giving the product/device at a very less price for maybe just $1 or with some shipping charges.
Deleting such emails or messages is the key to being safe.
Browse safe, Stay secure!
