With technology being an integral part of everyday life, it is important to be protected from continuously evolving cyberthreats. 

ESET Internet Security Expert Tony Anscombe says Cybercriminals phish for your credentials and sell them to fraudsters who may access your bank account.

"It's a big business - which is why its so prevelent,"  explains ESET Internet Security Expert Tony Anscombe.  "Cybercriminals are unfortunatley becoming more clever and emails are becoming more targeted."

Anscombe says the address or source of the email will be the greatest hint at whether an email is fraudulent or not.  Either way, he says two-step verification is your best bet at staying safe.
