What is phishing? What are the risks?
Phishing refers to criminals efforts to obtain personal data from users by mimicking a reliable source, often through deceptive websites, emails, phone calls, or text messages. The objective is to exploit this data for financial gain, jeopardizing account holders. The term phishing draws an analogy with fishing, where these wrongdoers try to lure unsuspecting users into disclosing their passwords, account details, or other confidential information they would otherwise safeguard.
Regrettably, the world of online trading and investment is susceptible to such deceptive endeavors aimed at defrauding users of their funds. For instance, in May 2021, Europol collaborated with various law enforcement agencies to dismantle a money laundering and investment fraud syndicate, causing collective losses of €30 million (US$36 million) for numerous victims across Europe. These wrongdoers established counterfeit yet convincingly professional online trading platforms, enticing victims through social media and search engine advertisements. They masqueraded as seasoned brokers, reaching out to victims via a fabricated call centers, and utilized manipulated software to deceive them.
As a result, it's imperative to consistently authenticate your transactions with the official Evest platform and our legitimate representatives to avoid impostors.
