Credit Card Glossary: Terms and Definitions
Phishing is a criminal technique that uses computers to steal credit or debit card or bank account information. Consumers often see phishing attempts in the form of fake e-mails that mimic those of banks. Consumers who click on such copycat e-mails will be transferred to a phony site that will try to dupe them into entering Social Security or bank account numbers.
