What is Phishing?
🎣 Phishing is a criminal act performed by cybercriminals where they request personal information and their victims voluntarily give it to them.
🖥 One of the characteristics of phishing attacks is that the victims believe they are communicating with a trusted source.
🙅♀️ During the interactions with the cybercriminals, victims provide personal information, such as names, addresses, banking and credit card details, user names and passwords; and social security numbers.
💸 That is everything you need to request a credit card or open a bank account online!
🦹♀️ Identity theft is one of the most common consequences of phishing attacks.
