Sitting by a lake catching fish with my Dad was one of my favorite things when I was little. I was usually the one that caught actual fish, while my Dad ended up getting an old shoe or a stick.
These days there’s a different kind of fishing going on that could be quite harmful. ‘Phishing’ is the term for fraud where criminals pose as a reputable entity and attempt to “catch” your personal information. Crooks will use websites, phone calls or text messages that sound or appear legitimate to bait unsuspecting victims into giving out usernames, passwords, and even credit card numbers.
