How SAFE are WE?
  • It is clear that the internet has endless possibilities and is helpful to us in so many ways on a daily basis.
  • What seems to be a safe environment, and completely trust worthy, sometimes it is the exact opposite.
  • The following are examples of different types of harm to our computers, and all computers.

Phishingis similar to what it sounds like. It is used by criminals to gain access to your information. They use a ‘fishing line’ – an e-mail, ‘bait’ – a business you trust or a seemingly sincere statement, and try to ‘reel’ you into giving out personal or financial information. They could use this information to open bank accounts or credit card accounts in your name and withdraw money or make expensive purchases.

How To Recognize Phishing

∙ Phishing is achieved through e-mails that are sent out in mass amounts. They may seem legitimate because they take logos and information from actual businesses and create websites that appear to be safe.

∙They will try to get you to give out your personal information using techniques within the website and e-mail. It could even be through an actual business you may have an account or customer relationship with that they are posing as.

Fraud - Shop-at-Home/Catalog Sales
  • This fraud is all about when people buy items from the internet from websites like ebay, kijii etc. You almost always have to pay the price and shipping fee before you actually get the products you purchased.
  • Often times you don’t get the  products you purchased therefore  that is fraud  because you don't receive the products you ordered  the  way they said they would  send it  or you don’t receive them at all depending with who you are ordering it with.
It is the same thing on if you are ordering out of catalogue like sears, avon etc. With these catalogues it’s the same thing because people with send the catalogue and items in the mail and they want to receive the money in advance to ensure that they don’t get scammed.  Meanwhile  half time the costumers are the ones who get scammed instead  because they  don’t  receive  there  products  or don’t  receive what  the label  says.
