Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Phishing

Phishing is any e-mail falsely claiming to be from an established, legitimate organization such as a financial institution, business or government agency.  The e-mail may request or direct the consumer to visit a certain website to update or provide personal and/or financial information and passwords. It is really a malicious attempt to collect customer information for the purpose of committing identity theft and fraud.
