and the page they reffered me to said that the site had been flagged

The URL that Google provided you with indicates that a phishing page for [absa] is (or was) being accessed through your site. Have you looked for evidence of such an unauthorized page being hosted on your site (or the server that your site is on)? When I have seen these before, there are usually more than one site on the server that are having issues like this.

FWIW, the SafeBrowsing Report and the UnmaskParasites report referenced previously are not helpful when it comes to sites being flagged for phishing. The Malware list and the Phishing lists maintained by Google, are two separate lists, and neither of those reports will reflect phishing related issues.

The following page is probably what Google originally found that resulted in the phishing notification.

What to do if your Website has been hacked by phishers

Once you have the problem resolved, you will want to use the link that was provided in that interstitial page, to notify Google to request that the warning be removed.

If none of the normal pages on your site generate a phishing warning and the URL that Google notified you of is not accessible to anyone from within your site, it shouldn’t be problematic for you. However, it is still important for you to figure out how that page was initially present and how to secure the site so that it cannot be used in that way again.
