Phish dating

After hours, you can find him practicing taekwondo or doing deep dives on classic sci-fi.

By impersonating a potential partner, building up a relationship online and then claiming to be in financial distress, a cunning phisher could scam a well-meaning but gullible user out of thousands of dollars.

Phishing for dating sites rather than banks may seem counterintuitive; after all, dating sites hold relatively little in the way of compromising personal or financial information.

A user on a dating site may list his or her credit card information, but compared to a bank account with tons of money, a home address and a social security number, the risk/reward balance at a dating site seems unfavorable.

After acquiring email addresses from members of dating sites, the script sends a message telling members that they need to log into their accounts for any number of fraudulent reasons (usually "account confirmation" or something that sounds equally innocuous).

The email displays a URL to, say, e Harmony, while actually linking to a disreputable site that copies the e Harmony aesthetic and login system.

Researchers at the Netcraft Internet security blog discovered 862 phishing scripts making the rounds at popular sites, and only eight of them targeted banks.
