- About This Email Scam
This email is a scam that tries to trick you into giving out personal information such as your passwords, account information or credit card numbers.
In these type of emails, cyber criminals will pretend to be from a legitimate business such a bank, tech company or internet service provider, and claim there is a urgent need for you to update your information or communicate with you for security reasons.
These phishing emails will then attempt to entice you to click on a link that will take you to a fake or "spoofed" site, created with the sole purpose of stealing your personal or financial details. These malicious sites will look very unusual and not fit with what you expect from that company, or could appear very genuine- but in both cases they end up having a suspicious URL in the web address bar.
If you have received such an email, don’t click on any links, open attachments, or expand any included pictures. Don’t try to reply to the sender, and if you believe you’re on a phishing site, don’t enter any information.
