Phishing is a term used to describe attempts by hackers and scammers to get you to visit a website or to download/open a particular file.

Typically, “Phishing” scams are sent by email and have large amount of themes and topics, but all of them will involve money at some point in the chain – most have the end goal to trick you into giving out personal information such as your bank account numbers, passwords and credit card numbers – which the attackers will use or sell to get financial reward.
