How to read in Japanese: phishing

Phishing is a method of stealing personal information, such as credit card numbers, passwords, and account information, by sending an email pretending to be from a financial institution and inducing the recipient to click on a URL on the site, which is then used as a fake site pretending to be from that financial institution.

If you click on the link without realizing it is a malicious act, your personal information can be leaked without your knowledge. Attacks targeting virtual currency exchanges are also on the rise, and there have been confirmed cases where funds in accounts have been frozen.

By easily believing the contents of an email or clicking on a URL, you can often suffer unexpected damage. By logging in to a fake site and having your password or 2-factor authorization code exploited, you may eventually have all the money you have deposited withdrawn.

In addition to suspicious emails, be aware that in some cases, advertisements on the Internet are the gateway to phishing scams.
