Phishing scams are emails or other messages that appear to come from a known sender, but are actually sent by hackers or other dangerous entities. Phishing emails often ask a user to click on a fraudulent link, or request personal information such as a password or banking information.

Phishing scams are increasingly prevalent. Although a number of emails are flagged for phishing by Google, some suspicious messages have the potential to circumvent filters. We have created this page to share with you some of the recent phishing scams currently in circulation.
