A spoof website is a site that uses dishonest designs to trick users into thinking that it represents some other uninvolved party. Spoof websites commonly imitate the sites of banks and other official businesses or government agencies, often in order to fraudulently collect sensitive financial or personal information from users.

This term can refer to a site that is a parody or satire, although this use is less common.
