What does Phishing mean?

Back to Help

Phishing describes a form of online fraud where you get tricked into going to a website and entering your personal data and information such as account or credit card details. These phishing websites try to emulate an actual website you might use and are sometimes very hard to distinguish from the genuine site.

Most phishing attempts are initiated via spam email, that all of us receive. If you are worried about phishing fraud, please see our Online Security page with various options that can help to prevent it.
