October is Cyber Security Month, and with it comes yet another Phishing attempt. Here’s what you need to be on the look-out for.
It’s an email which looks like it’s coming from the USPS, but it isn’t. The email is telling you that you have a package sitting at the post office and you need to come get it. That they’ve tried to deliver it to you. But as with all phishing attempts, there are some obvious spelling errors, as well as grammar mistakes.
Here are some other points, it isn’t speaking directly to your company, or even your address. And the reply to address is some place not in the country. The tracking ID isn’t even valid. These are important factors when looking at emails like this. When you stop and look at all the facts, it really stands out as a fake email, just trying to get you to click on it.
So please, when you get an email that looks fishy, be aware of the fact that it probably is. If you have to ask yourself, is this legit? More often than not, it is indeed not legit at all.
If you are still questioning it, and want some reassurance, send us an email here at Webtivity, or give us a call. We’re happy to answer any question you have. But don’t forward the email if you think it’s suspicious, take a screen shot of it, and send us the picture. We don’t want you forwarding any phishing emails.
