My friends, I wish to pay your attention one more time. Again. Do not trust to emails which asks you send somewhere your passwords, credit card numbers, etc. Do not trust them, even if they looking very similar to messages you could receive from well known services.
I received such message this morning and want to show it to you. Just in order you know, how it could be masks.
Look to the image below. Text seems reasonable and legal. Even name from where this email was sent looks as firstname.lastname@example.org and it seems that it belong to PayPal from the first glance.
Thefts boldly requires from you to send them your credit card number and PIN :). “Send securely”, – they offer. And even opens real PayPal help snippets from two links. But look inside theirs HTML. Where you probably intended to send so critical data? Will it be secure? I say again:
Just look where this form submits data from user input:
Is it PayPal? IT IS NOT. They even not use secure HTTPS protocol. That’s it.
Finaly, there is no any solid company which could ask you send them your passwords or credit card number and PIN by email or using insecure connection and unknown domain. If you receive such request – it is a try to cheat you. Do not be a victim of fraud. Always win! 🙂
Did you see other tries of cheating, fraud in your mailbox?
