“Phishing” Scams are Evolving…Now It’s “Vishing”

Society’s underbelly continues to display creativity in the development of new ways to defraud the unsuspecting, and this constant search for innovative scams has now yielded an approach labeled “vishing,” with “phishing” now conflated with voice-based approaches to start the fraud contact.
