Phishing is when one receives fradulent e-mails that appear to come from a legitimate source, such as one's bank or another trusted business. The e-mails ask customers to verify personal information or link to counterfeit web sites.
Banks will never ask you for personal information, such as account numbers or passwords in an e-mail. Do not respond to any e-mails that direct you to update your personal information online or by dialing a telephone number. Use only the customer service numbers listed on your statements.
Hampshire IT has a Q&A about phishing. Contact the help desk if you have any questions about phishing. And remember, NEVER give out your username and password.
