Learn how to detect a phishing e-mail website
Can you spot the difference between the legitimate site and the phishing site?
One of these pages is the legitimate site - the other is a well-designed fake, made to trick visitors into giving their login information to phishers.
How do I tell the difference?
To distinguish the phishing site: Check the url. Whatever comes before the / is the actual site.
In this case apple.com/ and mariocarro.com/ are the final destinations of the sites. The phishing site attempts to confuse visitors by adding apple.com-login-online - but by looking at what comes before .com/, you can tell it's a fake site.
By staying vigilant, you can avoid being phished!
Things to Remember:
- Phishing scammers make sites look legitimate to try to fool you into entering your username and password.
- Be skeptical of links to login pages sent through e-mail.
- Always check the web address (URL) and verify the site’s security certificate before entering your personal information.
- The security certificate should match the owning company or organization (Look for the green lock icon)
