Get to know phishing email

Phishing email is the act of obtaining personal information such as User ID, Password and other sensitive data by posing as an authorized person or organization through an email.

Phishing email usually pretends / claims to be an official representative of a particular community. For example paypal, phishing email will usually ask for a password by claiming to be the official party. Sometimes there is also using article / status / post.

Never click on links or open attachments of suspicious or unwanted messages. If you need to charge or update personal information, contact the company directly.
The following signs can help you identify phishing email scams:

  • The recipient’s email address or phone number does not match the name of the origin of the company it claims to be.
  • Your email address or phone number is different from what you gave it to.
  • The message begins with a generic greeting, such as “Hello customer.” Most legitimate companies will include your name in their message to you.
  • The link looks like an official but takes you to a website with URLs that do not match the company’s website address. *
  • Messages look very different from other messages you receive from the same company.
  • Messages requesting personal information, such as credit card numbers or account passwords.
  • Messages are not requested and contain attachments.

    Then what should you do?

    1. Be careful when you get an email submission containing an email link asking you to fill in your personal information. Pay close attention to the URL address in the address bar.

    2. Just typing personal data on a secure website. You need to be more careful about giving your personal information to others, even if it’s on behalf of a domain you know.

    3. Especially for email with a definite address, you do not need to reply because the email sent by noreply is usually an email that is information.
