phishing in plain English

I’m a fan of the “In Plain English” videos by Common Craft. Here’s one that talks about “phishing,” which is the fraudulent attempt to get your password, PIN, credit card number, or other personal information by posing as your bank or other trustworthy source. We get these phishing scams from time to time in our work email as well as our home email. Don’t be fooled!
