The fake "Argos Credit Limit Increase" email below is a phishing scam being sent to cybercriminals. The link in the fake email goes to phishing website that will ask visitors to sign-in. If the visitors attempt to sign-in, their Argos' credential will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the phishing scam. Once the cybercriminals have gotten hold of the stolen credentials, they will use it to gain access to their victims' accounts and use the accounts fraudulently.
