"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.
