In the first place, what is phishing?
Phishing is an invented word cobbled out of the two words “password” and “fishing”.
Criminals use fake emails to try to obtain personal data – in particular login data – from their victims by luring them to fake websites and tricking them into entering their data. In the meantime, a multitude of bogus companies exist. For some time now, not only banks, but also online shops, social media, online games, and many more companies are being counterfeited.
