Phishing is a kind of e-mail fraud scam conducted for the purposes of information or identity theft . Phishing site exactly looks like the original site in its color scheme , layout and design . Phishers generally imitates PayPal , bank sites, social networking sites etc. But i got shocked when i received the following PM in digital point webmaster forum.
Clicking on the link forwarded me to this page.
( Digital point phishing -Click to make it larger )
I was in an idle mode for few minutes . So i thought its because they are asking me to log in . It was surprised to know that returned nothing when i logged in . Then i checked the URL
Oh my gosh!!
I ran back to my CP In DP and changed my password and user name.
At the end of the story i reported the phisher to kaspersky , dp modertors , mozilla and symantec.
So be careful while reading emails leading you to a login page . Check out the URL before you enter a user name or password . Always look for identity information (Check if SSL is enabled or not) before using paypal , credit card payments , social networking sites etc.
