Phishing is the illegal attempt to mislead people into providing personal or financial information, including credit card numbers, login IDs, passwords and Social Security numbers, via email or through fraudulent websites. The most frequent phishing attacks occur through email disguised to appear as though it came from a reputable company. Most phishing attempts urge you to update or validate your account information, typically through a link in an email directing you to a fake website that appears to be legitimate.

To help protect your computer and personal information, make sure you have current anti-virus and firewall software installed on your computer and update such software on a regular basis. Also, please review your credit card statements carefully and verify that all transactions are authorized and report any discrepancies immediately to your credit card company.
