Means trying to get hold of people's bank account and credit card information over the internet in order to steal money from them.

here's a better one it means: hackers trying to copy a legit website (like facebook or a bank website) and making it look the same when you login like facebook or the bank your email and personal stuff like your credit number and other stuff gets sent to their email address and then they now your password or what ever you sent
