Phishing

Phishing is the illegal attempt to mislead people into providing personal or financial information, including credit card numbers, login IDs, passwords and Social Security numbers, via email or through fraudulent websites.  The most frequent phishing attacks occur through email disguised to appear as though it came from a reputable company.  Most phishing attempts urge you to update or validate your account information, typically through a link in an email directing you to a fake website that appears to be legitimate.

Do not provide your personal or financial information in response to an email request or after clicking on a link from an email.  The Company does not ask for this type of information through an email communication.
