What are Phishing scams
Some phishing mails include a legitimate-looking URL that actually conceals the phishing URL, or the site where the stolen information is stored, while some include an image, which when clicked, directs the affected user to the phishing site.
You should always remember that a legitimate financial institution will never ask for details of your account via an e-mail. You must never e-mail financial information over the Internet as it is not a secure method for transmitting such sensitive information.
