If truth be told, phishing has been one of the oldest and most effective tools for cyber criminals. Phishing scams are known to have started around the year 1995 and they have only grown fiercer and sneakier with time. While we are not deep-diving into this topic today, we have a simple infographic for our readers, that skims off the most basic characteristics of a phishing attack.

Hi Nandan,

Can you tell us which account or service this occurred on? It would be best to contact the support team of that particular service in order to look into this.

Really good article. This time I am getting these type of emails regarding bankaccount. They are giving links that click on it and do online banking without One time Passward (OTP). I was too confused and never click on that . Did Spam these email. Thanks Rajib.

Hi Tirthankar,

In the Settings section, there is an option for turning on news updates and notifications. Once that is done, you will receive these messages on your PC.
