Email spoofing is a type of internet crime wherein the perpetrator sends a fraudulent email but formats it in such a way as to make it appear as though it originated from a legitimate source. Upon receiving the email, the victim will open it and visit the website listed in the email. This website is fraudulent but may appear to be a valid website in order to obtain sensitive information from the victim. This aspect may be referred to as website spoofing.
