Phishing your e-mail
Phishing is an attempt by someone to get you to provide personal information by masquerading as a person or organization, on the internet, that you trust. Most attempts will arrive by e-mail, but they can also be made by telephone, letter mail and in person. A more detailed description can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phishing. An example of a UBC targeted phising attempt, can be seen at https://psychiatry.ubc.ca/information-for-faculty-and-staff/it/e-mail/phishing/
