Anyone who uses email can be a target for phishing scammers. When people ask, "what is phishing?" the most common scenario is as follows: You open your email and suddenly an alert from your bank appears in your inbox. When you click the link in the email, you are taken to a webpage that looks, more or less, like your bank's — but is actually designed to steal your information. The alert will say there is a problem with your account, and ask you to confirm your login and password. After entering your credentials on the page that appears, you are usually sent to the actual institution to enter your information a second time. By steering you to the legitimate institution, you don't immediately realize your information was stolen.
