EMAIL FRAUD AND PHISHING

What is an email scam?

Criminals are soliciting clients by email in an effort to illegally obtain personal information for the sole purpose of defrauding them. The email and website addresses given may appear legitimate in most cases but it is actually an attempt to trick you into supplying sensitive personal data, they will claim all kinds of situation just to get at ones personal detail account and will provide a link and or an email address that may look authentic. You will be asked to provide put personal information, Bank Account Numbers, Usernames and or Passwords, etc. This fraudulent practice is often called “Phishing” or “Spoofing.”
