This FBI outline are the steps to a typical "hack" / "attack" against a user to obtain information to gain more information from others to collect sensitive account information to be used against the victims or email recipient/company. This process is referred to as a reverse engineered attack, since front end cyber attacks are not used so much any more.

Please review these points in your organization with your people to be aware or alert of these phishing attempts/attacks.
