Phishing scams appear to originate from a trusted source to trick a user into providing information. The attacker can then use this information to access your accounts, gather additional private information about you, and make purchases or apply for credit in your name.
Tip of the Week:
Links Can Be Misleading. Before Clicking On a Link, Take Another Look.
Don't just click on links that you have received through email or instant messenger. Even if the link text looks like a URL, the link could be going somewhere else. Instead, move your mouse pointer
over the link without clicking on it. Look at where the link is going in the status bar. If the link is not going where it should be or is pointing
to a file (such as a .exe), don't click on the link.
