Phishing and spoofing are somewhat synonymous in that they refer to forged or faked electronic documents. Spoofing generally refers to the dissemination of email which is forged to appear as though it was sent by someone other than the actual sender. Phishing, often utilized in conjunction with spoofed email, is the creation of a website to make that site appear as the legitimate business website. Once the fraudulent email has been launched, the spoofed websites attempt to dupe the unsuspecting victims into divulging sensitive information such as passwords, credit card numbers, and bank account information.
