Nodes of term Phishing

This one is very similar to other scams. It is used to specifically speak of a scam where you are asked your credentials. This is, in most cases, a login and a password to a page such as your bank account, PayPal or Amazon. After that, the bad guys have your info and can use your account to steal your money or buy something in your name (which is exactly the same since it will be paid with your money.)
