Phishing has become a common kind of cyber-crime which is generally referred to as an attempt to trick someone into giving private information over the internet or by email that would allow someone else to access them. Sensitive information such as usernames, passwords or credit card numbers is taken possession of, by means of an email, text message, or a message through an online chat where the sender seems to be an administrator from a trusted authority or the owner of the particular website you are visiting. The content displayed on these messages urges the recipient to take immediate action by logging into another website which is more likely to be fake or clicking on a link or replying the message providing personal information.
