Phishing, vishing and smishing – What it is?
Any website, online service, phone call or text message that poses as a company or brand you recognise.
Any contact like this is designed to convince you to hand over valuable personal details or your money or download something that infects your computer.
The three terms are all plays on the word ‘fishing’, in that the fraudsters fish for potential victims by sending emails, social media messages or text messages or making phone calls with urgent messages in the hope of persuading someone to visit the bogus website.
