Phishing scams: Examples and tips to avoid them

Phishing is a very common scamming technique on the Internet. It aims to usurp the identity of a public entity or one with a high profile (bank, energy supplier, etc.) in order to retrieve sensitive data: login details, bank account details or even personal data.

The method of operation is very simple: the scammers make copies of the sites they are usurping and then send out alarming messages or incitements to action, particularly by means of e-mails. Using various pretexts (a refund due, a credit card expiry or a risk of hacking), the scammer displays a link hoping that an Internet user will fall into the trap.
When the victim clicks on the link, they are redirected to a site that looks exactly like the original. All the information he enters is then automatically sent to the scammer who can then use it as he pleases.

On this page, you will find many examples of phishing reported by Internet users.

If you are a victim or a witness of this kind of scam, you should report it using this form.
