A type of scam that has surfaced recently is Phishing. Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by disguising as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Never click on any links within emails from people that a). you do not know, and b). you were not expecting. Most businesses will never send you an email requesting your personal data.
