Phishing (spoofing) websites mislead users by using bogus websites that look legitimate. The following tech-recipe will help you combat this.

    Phishing is fraudulent. Basically, these scam artists use tricks to spoof the URL; therefore, what is in your browser’s address bar is not really the website name.

    This Javascript can help:

    javascript:alert("The Real URL address: " + location.protocol + "//" + location.hostname + "/");

    Simply cut and paste this into your browser’s address bar, and click Enter. A message box with the real URL address should appear.
