Cybercriminals using Melania Trump name to Phishing attack.
How to recognize phishing email messages, links, or phone calls
Phishing email messages, websites, and phone calls are designed to steal money. Cybercriminals can do this by installing malicious software on your computer or stealing personal information off of your computer. Cybercriminals also use social engineering to convince you to install malicious software or hand over your personal information under false pretenses. They might email you, call you on the phone, or convince you to download something off of a website.
Phishing is one way that identity thieves, scammers and fraudsters steal information. They do this through the use of social engineering or deception. The goal is to trick you into divulging confidential or personal information which can then be used for fraudulent purposes, like identity theft. They need to get enough information to impersonate or even replace you, in the virtual world of the internet or in a modern bank. This information can be as basic as your full legal name, social security number and home address. It can also get as in-depth as bank account numbers, online banking login credentials, your mother’s maiden name and can even include the secret questions and answers for your online banking or PayPal accounts.
