What is Phising?

Phising is defined as, the fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords, PIN numbers and credit card numbers, online.

Fraudsters normally send fraudulent email or SMS messages which appear to be authentic and legitimate. These messages contain links or attachments which, if accessed, will take you to a fake website and prompt you for your details or request for you to log into your bank account.

These sites normally ask for you to verify your full banking details, rather than the selected pieces of information normally required for you to access your account.

The fraudsters then use your details to access your account(s) and steal your money.
