Phishing is an extremely common method of online fraud that involves stealing a person’s private information. This is worked out by secretly directing a person to a malicious twin of a popular site (e.g. Paypal) where they will enter their login and password. After you enter your information at such a site your actual account will be captured, and all your money will be immediately transferred to the accounts of thieves. When something like this takes effect, it can be very tricky to get your money back because the majority of sites which can store your money will hold you responsible for your actions.
