Phishing scams continue to fill the headlines these days. Phishers use spam (unwanted e-mail) to lure people to bogus Web sites to obtain personal information and commit identity theft. Be advised: Phishing scams and their Web sites often appear authentic or from a trusted source, using a company's proper logo, colors and design elements. Use these measures to avoid being hooked by a phisher:
Install and use a firewall, antivirus software and anti-spyware programs on your computer.
Delete e-mails requesting personal information. Note: CommonWealth will never send you an e-mail requesting personal information.
Don't visit a Web site listed in an unsolicited e-mail if you have any suspicion about its authenticity. And never use a link within an e-mail to visit a Web site-instead, open a new browser and type in the URL.
Change your online banking and shopping account passwords every three to six months.
Only enter credit card or account information via a secure Web site -- one that begins with "https" in the URL and has a padlock icon on the browser frame (click on the browser frame to view the security certificate).
If you have online access, monitor your accounts frequently.
