Definition Edit

URL obfuscation is

[t]aking advantage of human error, [where] some scammers use phishing emails to guide recipients to fraudulent sites with names very similar to established sites. They use a slight misspelling or other subtle difference in the URL, such as "" instead of "" to redirect users to share their personal information unknowingly.[1]
