phishing : Java Glossary

an attempt to trick consumers into disclosing personal and/or financial information. The emails appear to come from companies with whom consumers may regularly conduct business (e.g., AOL (America Online), Earthlink, PayPal, eBay, or a credit card issuer). Often times the email threatens termination of accounts unless consumers update billing information. A common trick is to claim the account has been compromised and that information is needed to verify. This is one of the key tricks of identity theft. Email programs such as Eudora will warn you if links in Emails go to websites differing from what they claim to, often sites without names, just a numeric IP (Internet Protocol). If you ever click a link in an email, triple check it goes to a website you trust, not a site that masquerades as a legitimate site. It is best to avoid clicking website links in emails.
