A phishing website refers to a fake website which is used to deceive users. The page of a phishing website would basically be similar in appearance to the real website. These fake websites are used by scammers to deceive users and obtain their important information such as secret phrases.
In general, phishing websites would only have one or a few pages, which will differ slightly from real websites. Scammers would usually advertise fake airdrops or impersonate official support staff, or find other means to attract users to their websites. Most of the time, they may guide the user to enter secret phrases on the website, and then transfer the crypto assets in the wallet out to another one.
Here’s an example of a phishing website:
The phishing website attracts user by posting airdrop event on the main page. When a user clicks “Claim Rewards”, he will be guided to a page to enter secret phrase.(The word phrase is written incorrectly as Pharase on the phishing website.)
When a user enter the 12-word secret phrase to connect wallet on the page, the scammers will use these words to transfer all the assets out.
