  PhishingWednesday, September 20th, 2017  


Phishing is a scam where Internet fraudsters send spam or pop-up messages to lure personal and financial information from unsuspecting victims. To avoid getting hooked:
  • Don't reply to email or pop-up messages that ask for personal or financial information, and don't click on links in the message. Don't cut and paste a link from the message into your Web browser - phishers can make links look like they go one place, but that actually send you to a different site.

  • If you are concerned about your account, contact the organization using a phone number you know to be genuine, or open a new Internet browser session and type in the company's correct Web address yourself.

  • Use anti-virus and anti-spyware software, as well as a firewall, and update them all regularly.

  • Don't email personal or financial information.

  • Review credit card and bank account statements as soon as you receive them to check for unauthorized charges.

  • Be cautious about opening any attachment or downloading any files from emails you receive, regardless of who sent them.

  • Forward spam that is phishing for information to spam@uce.gov and to the company, bank, or organization impersonated in the phishing email. You also may report phishing email to reportphishing@antiphishing.org. The Anti-Phishing Working Group, a consortium of ISPs, security vendors, financial institutions and law enforcement agencies, uses these reports to fight phishing.

  • If you've been scammed, visit the Federal Trade Commission's Identity Theft website at http://www.consumer.gov/idtheft/.
