Abstract

Phishing is a form of fraud used to obtain personal information, such as passwords, credit card numbers, and other financial information by impersonating a trusted entity or website. In the context of web-based phishing crimes, perpetrators create fake websites that often closely resemble the official website of the entity they are impersonating, such as a bank, e-commerce company, or social media platform. Phishing perpetrators then distribute links or send fake emails to victims, trying to lure them into entering their personal information. After gaining access to this sensitive information, perpetrators can exploit victims in a variety of ways, including identity theft, financial fraud, and further cyberattacks. Web-based phishing crimes are a growing threat, and as perpetrators become more adept at orchestrating attacks, efforts to address web-based phishing crimes are critical to protecting individuals and business entities from financial loss, identity theft, and privacy violations.
