The term “phishing” refers to the attempt to acquire sensitive information such as credit card details, Social Security numbers, and other personal protected information by falsely posing as a trustworthy entity, usually in an electronic communication (telephone, email, instant messaging, etc.).
The purpose of phishing is to steal your identify or personal protected information through deception, and to use that information for fraudulent activity and scams. Phishing attempts may use trusted organization logos, names and styles to deceive victims into providing personal protected information.
Legitimate emails from LifeWise will never ask you for your username/password, Social Security number, financial data, or other personal protected information. We will also never threaten to cancel your coverage if you do not supply this information. If LifeWise contacts you via phone, it will only be in follow up to your previous inquiry and we will not ask for your personal protected information.
