Find the information you need to protect yourself against
phishing attempts. Learn to recognize an attempt and find out what
steps you should take if you recieve a phishing attempt or give
your personal information to a phisher.
A phishing attempt is a fraudulent email, text message or phone

Identifiable Information (PII). These messages are sometimes
successful because the message appears to come from a trusted
source, such as your bank or UB.
