¿Qué es el phishing? Esta definición es de la webopedia:

Phishing (Fish-ing-Pescando)

El acto de enviar falsamente un correo electrónico a un usuario afirmando ser una empresa legítimamente establecida en un intento de estafa al usuario dentro de una entrega de información privada que será usada para identificar robos. El correo electrónico se le dirige al usuario para que visite un sitio Web donde ellos le pedirán información personal para actualización, tales como una clave, y tarjeta de crédito, seguro social, y números de cuentas bancarias, que la organización legítima tiene listas. El sitio Web, de cualquier modo, es pantanoso y sólo se organiza para robarse la información del usuario.

I reported it to PayPal, and received this answer:
