Nowadays it is very common to hear about some kind of cyber fraud, such criminal conducts that were already continuously practiced years ago, have intensified and gained new modalities. With the advent of social isolation caused by the pandemic, the cybercrime known as phishing was the most executed fraud modality worldwide, which is explained by the increase of internet users that in their great majority are unaware of basic rules to prevent this type of attack. The objective of this paper is to present the concept of phishing and social engineering, to highlight the main and current phishing modalities, to explain how the attacks work and to propose some basic but effective ways to detect and combat this type of crime.
