How to Identify Phishing? Protection & Security What is phishing and how can I identify it? Phishing is when someone initiates fraudulent communications that appear to come from a trusted source. It can happen through any channel (phone, e-mail, SMS,.. etc.). Usually, phishers aim to steal and use sensitive data, such as your credit card details and passwords. To spot a scam or phishing attack, ask yourself the following 👇 Is the sender unknown to you? Is this communication strange or unexpected? Are there any spelling or grammar mistakes within the communication? Are there any unusual links or attachments within the communication? Are you being asked for personal details and security information? Is the sender rushing you to make a decision? If the answer is YES, we encourage you to be cautious as this might be a potential phishing attempt.
