"Phishing" emails, which try to persuade you to go to a rogue website and to leave lots of personal details, even your credit card data, have been with us for some time.
They are getting more professional looking and can fool many otherwise careful people into going to a website, which looks exactly like the legitimate site that you believe you have been pointed to, but which is run by crooks.

A client of ours has reported being cold-called by a company that offered to improve the Google search engine ranking for her website.
They managed to persuade her that she'd signed up to their services a couple of years ago and now just needed to renew the contract.
She didn't recall signing up, but they offered to prove it by letting her know that her credit card number started with a 4. Of course it does. All Visa cards start with a 4!
