Identity Theft, Internet Safety, Scams & Fraud Phishing
Phishing is a con used by high-tech criminals to facilitate one of America's leading forms of fraud
Phishing is a con used by high-tech criminals to facilitate one of India’s leading forms of fraud – identity theft. Basically, the scam uses unsolicited email (spam) to bait consumers into disclosing sensitive personal information such as social security numbers, account and routing numbers, credit card numbers, personal identification numbers, passwords, and other private data.
Be cautious of e-mails asking you for personal information. “Phishing” e-mails send users to phony websites where they are asked to update personal information such as social security, account numbers, passwords, credit card numbers, etc. Suvarnayug Co-operative Bank will never ask you to provide this information via e-mail.
