Fraudulent emails sent by someone pretending to be legitimate in order to trick you into divulging personal details like banking details or passwords is nothing new. But despite how familiar we become with the concept, email phishing continues to be on the increase with each passing year.
It happens all over the globe, not just in South Africa, and results in losses of hundreds of millions of Rands to every year.
