Three types of phishing scams everyone needs to know

July 11, 2022 — 
A phishing email uses a sense of urgency to direct the victim to visit a website designed to steal the victim's account credentials. Some phishing attacks are very straight forward, for example, "Update your password now!!!" can easily be detected because they typically are not written well (poor grammar and word choice). However, some attacks are sophisticated, look like they come from a trusted contact, are well written, and lead to a site that closely resembles the spoofed website.
