The act of social engineering.

Social engineering is a collection of techniques used to manipulate people into performing actions or divulging confidential information.While similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, the term typically applies to trickery for information gathering or computer system access and in most (but not all) cases the attacker never comes face-to-face with the victim.
