Here you have an easy way to avoid passwords steal through website whose look and feel are almost identical to the legitimate one (the so-called phishing)
This is my little trick:
When – entering a protected site – you have to enter username and password, NEVER enter the correct password at the first try: ENTER A WRONG ONE. Always enter the correct password on the second or even third attempt.
This, because: if the server does not recognize that the password is wrong and replay us like if it were right, for example: “…. thanks for updating your data … ” means that the site did not know our password, and, most likely, our data were taken by someone who will try to use them (and which will remain “screwed”); If the website, after entering the wrong password, will give us the message that the password is wrong then we are certainly linked to the real server (because knew the password) and can continue.
If everybody use this little trick before entering a password, the criminals who hold identical copies of the websites to steal passwords never know if the captured password is right or wrong, and probably in a short time will disappear.
Someone said that I had a brilliant idea….. If you want to help us to share this information sends a link to this page to everyone you know, especially those little practices of the Internet and easily deceived.

It happen when receive emails that tell how to go to update your credit card or that the account was blocked etc… calling to go on the site and reenter your username and password.
