Phishing  according to Wikipedia, is the act of attempting to acquire information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money) by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Communications purporting to be from popular social web sites, auction sites, online payment processors or IT administrators are commonly used to lure the unsuspecting public.
Phishing can also be seen as an act of cloning a site e.g If someone want to hack your Facebook Account, He/She would need an Exact Page like the Facebook Homepage with a little PHP Code at the back of the Script and then Upload it online {usually hosted online free}, then share the link on facebook or other site and lie to you that you can Make or Get $1000 in 3 Days and all that kind of attractive lies and when you click on the Link, A Facebook Homepage will show up, If you dare input your Email and Password, The Details will be sent to the email address of the Hacker.
The example of Phishing site is the clone of 2go site made by an hacker and use it to lying to the people that if they enter their 2go username and password in to the site, they will get big 2go credit in the next 10minutes.
Click here to view the site and if you are doubting me, you may login to that site with your 2go username and password and see what will happen to your 2go account in the next 10 to 20 minutes.
By the way i was early wrote Series Way of Safekeeping Your 2go Account from Being Hacked you may also read that too to know how to prevent your 2go account too from been hacked.

The Issue of Facebook Account been Hacked is gradually getting out of hand, just a bit of carelessness, your Account is gone. From the Research we notice that 85% of Facebook Account are been Hacked through Phishing. That was why i dedicated my time to write this post.
The Best Solution to this Hack Method is just to check your URL, If you want to Visit or Login to Facebook or Yahoo, Always check the URL before input your Login Details else your account might get Hacked.

If you want to Login to Facebook and you see anything in the Address bar apart from www.facebook.com or m.facebook.com, Then you are Standing on Foam inside a River!
NOTE: Phishing can be used on any Website even on some Online Payment Website, When you Stumbled on a Wrong Payment Page and you input your Card Details and Submit, All your Card Details will be sent to the Hacker and guess what?
