What is fishing?
A phishing attack is a criminal fraud process that pretends to be someone else to obtain sensitive personal information such as usernames, passwords, funds, and ID cards. These communications all claim to be (self) from official operations, customer service or network managers to deceive the victim's credulity.
Through the virus: the criminals clone a website that is exactly the same as CITEX, and then use some computer virus programs, junk software, etc. to send the fake website address to the customer's computer, or put it on the search website to trick the user into logging in, in order to steal the user account password, Trading information or funds, etc.
SMS via mobile phone: Criminals use mobile phone text messages to pretend to be a scam message to users, claiming that the user wins or the account is stolen by others, and requires the user to log in to the website specified in the text message for authentication as soon as possible. The website is a fake website established by criminals to take user information. If the user logs in to the website and operates, the user's account number, password and other information will be known to the criminals.
Establishing a fake website: The criminals first create a fake website, and then publish false activity information on the website. When the user logs in onto the fake website, the account password information will be obtained by the criminals.
By impersonating the official mailbox: the criminals send a large number of fraudulent emails to lure users into the fake website. These emails are often used for various reasons such as winning, system upgrades, etc., requiring the recipient to click on the link address on the email and log in to a similar CITEX website.
