phishing for anything

We have always believed untill now that phishing was mostly for bankaccounts or financial virtual wallets but phishing is extending its reach to any account that can be useful in any number of ways. You will receive alerts and warnings for your mailaccount and you will receive them also with links to different premium services (like download services) but with a trick so that a code in the page with the link to the file in the background a copy makes of your login.

 

The trick is not to believe what you receive and alsways control the headers and the links on which you click or better don't click on links in emails and on sites that ask logins, type them by hand so you can not be fooled by whatever trick they use to make you think the link is legit.
