Recent Email Scams

December 28th, 2016

There has been an increase in the last 4-6 weeks in “Phishing” email scams that are looking to trick people into either giving out their email login information or financial information. The increase is most likely timed to take advantage of the holidays, when people are busy and IT departments have staff on holidays.  In all cases, the links do not point to the real site, and most from addresses are fake as well.  Most of these have been sent from real email accounts on legitimate systems that have been hijacked and used to send out spam, so the server and account aren’t on any blacklists. The account is only used for a short time and then a new account is selected.

What to do:

  • Flag the message as “Junk” or “Spam” in your email program (Outlook, Mail, and Thunderbird all have this option)
  • Use a strong password for your email account
  • Do not use your email account password for any other service
  • Look at the from email address and check that it’s valid
  • Hover your mouse pointer over the link (don’t click), to see where it goes on the bottom of the screen

What to look for:
