The recent rise in data breaches on the internet nowadays has resulted in a large volume of names and email addresses being accessed by fraudsters. This type of data breach opens the door to a specific type of convincing email scam called “spear phishing”, where the sender can identify you by name and send an email that appears to be from a company that you deal with.
As a precaution, we want to remind you of the following:
1. Be on the alert for emails that request personal information, even if you recognize the name of the sender. These should always be regarded as suspicious.
2. Before you give out information or take any action that is requested in an email, take a few moments to verify that request, even if the email contains your name and other information that applies to you.
3. Be cautious! Even if you recognize a sender's email address, do not rely on that alone because addresses may be faked. Pay attention to carefully read the entire email address of the sender, check the contents of the email and be careful of any embedded links.
