WEBSITE SPOOFING : Website spoofing is the act of creating a website, with the intention of misleading the readers. The website will be created by a different person or organisation (Other than the original) especially for the purposes of cheating.

  • Always type the URL of the site in the address bar to get into the site. Never click on the hyperlink to enter the site.

USING KEY LOGGERS OR TROJANS : Protecting yourselves from a keylogger scam is very easy.Just install a good anti-spyware program and update it regularly. This keeps your PC secure from a keylogger. Also there is a program called Anti-keylogger which is specially designed to detect and remove keyloggers.
