Phishing remains a threat

9th August 2010

Action Fraud is reminding everyone that fraudsters send hundreds of phishing emails every day, trying to trick people into handing over their personal information.

Phishing emails pretend to be from a genuine company and usually claim that it is necessary for a customer to ‘update’ or ‘verify’ their customer account information. They often ask customers to click on a link from the email to a website. Although the website may look genuine, it is in fact a bogus website.
