Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, and card details by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication (e.g. email). For example, phishing emails will almost always tell you to click on a link that takes you to a site which imitate true brands, such as our Trust brand, where your personal information is requested.
