After making the clone page of banks like Axis bank (just for example),what I do next I place it on my website by saying that it is the fastest link to your bank. People these days have no patients they will click on that link so that they can enter website more fastly. Here they did the big mistake then the clone page opens and person will think that it is the official page of Bank they enter there password and account no. As they click on LOGIN. What happens the password along with account no goes to hackers email address or in his server address. And as simple hacker hacks the account transfer the money and your like dumbo still watching and saying "Hey bhagwan yeh kasie ho gyaa"(omg, how can this be possible)
2.
