When you get phished, you’re likely to have either your personal information stolen and used against you (such as to steal your money) or your data and files on your laptop will be locked up (i.e. encrypted).

If someone has phished you and encrypted your data, they will likely ask for a ransom to be paid in order to unlock it. The software used is known as ransomware.
