One of my customer emailed me several days ago and highlighted one ‘fishing’ email. Well, he was correct about it – about the meaning that is 🙂

I believe most of you already know about ‘phishing’. For those who are not familiar with it – Phishing is the act of fradulent activities – for example, to trick you to provide sensitive informations such as your username and password, bank account number, personal verification number, challenge questions – which the purpose is to obtain or gain control of your account – that will result in minor or major loss for yourself (just imagine if someone were to grab your internet banking details and have full access to your accounts!).

Here are some good websites to test your understanding of ‘phishing’

power of god

May god bless us all, Amin.
