WHAT IS VISHING ?

 

          "Vishing" or "Voice Phishing" is the  act of leveraging a new technology called Voice over Internet Protocol(VoIP) in using the telephone system to falsely claim to be a legitimate enterprise in an attempt to scam users into disclose personal information. The victim is contacted by a phishing e-mail directed to a VoIP based telephone number. The user may recieve a telephone call from another individual with a spoofed caller ID or a recorded incoming call with a spoofed caller ID directing them to a phishing site.
