Phishing is a form of fraud in which an email sender attempts to trick the recipient into divulging important personal information like a password or bank account number, by pretending to be a representative of a legitimate organization.
Even net savvy people have fallen victim to phishing attacks by learning the hard way, that they have been too trusting of the messages reaching their in-boxes: too trusting that the sender identification is accurate.
Who hasnâ€™t done something in haste, because he was distracted or pre-occupied? Mistakes happen.
