Supplementary notes

* Phishing describes the practice of sending emails at random, purporting to come from a genuine company such as a bank, in an attempt to trick customers of that company into disclosing information at a bogus company website operated by fraudsters. Fraudsters send out thousands or even millions of spam emails trying to convince people to click on a link that will send them to that fake site. These emails usually claim that it is necessary to ‘update’ or ‘verify’ your password, and they urge you to click on a link from the email that takes you to the bogus bank website. Any information entered on the bogus website or form will be captured by the criminals for their own fraudulent purposes.
