Social Engineering is on the rise. In the fast moving technology age we live in email is both an excellent communication tool and also a way that companies can inform you about their latest products and services.
Unfortunately, it also provides scammers and other malicious individuals an easy means for luring potential victims. The scams they attempt run from old-fashioned bait-and-switch operations to phishing schemes using a combination of email and bogus web sites to trick victims into divulging sensitive information.
