Phishing By Ethan Harris

What is phishing

Phishing is the practice of sending messages pretending to be famous companies to induce people to click a link which is used to find out personal information including passwords and credit card numbers.

How can i avoid being phished?

You can enforce the security of your computer, check of source of incoming mail. If the website is http:// its usually safe. Check their grammar, spelling usually english isnt their primary language and is poorly translated. If you habe any doubts just don't risk it.

How much money do phishers make?

All the profit phishers make is stuck almost in a bubble where its limited resources and unreplenishable meaning no more money is going into the bubble eventually running out. Although originally it was believed that phishers were making a fairly good amount of money, as of now its been proven they don't make any profit at all and occasionally lose resources completely.
