Phishing

Phishing:

Sam received an email “Congratulations. . .You have won a Lottery!!!” Now, wasn’t that tempting..l

The message said:[Dear Winner, kindly ‘view your Lottery]

It meant that he has won the lottery.

‘ The message said that  he must Immediately

reply to the lottery official to claim the lottery  amount.

In his excitement, Ram shared all the required personal information, including his  bank account Number, IFSC Code, telephone number, and all the other details that were
asked in the email. It was only later that he realized that this was a scam message which could use this personal information in an unethical way.

The fraudsters obviously attempted to make the email appear genuine and convince him!

Phishing attacks are sent via email and ask users to click on a link which redirects to a dummy site where an attacker wants victim to enter their personal data or respond to an email which will steal all your personal information. In some cases, a user has to just click on the link.

What should you do?

Follow some simple rules:

1)Remember, you cannot win a lottery you have not participated in.

2) Do not trust random messages or those containing obvious mistakes.

3) Always check the sender’s email address. Lottery organizers will not send messages from free mail services.

If you still think it is a real win, check all the information. Use search engines to look at the lottery, senders’ names and telephone numbers.

4) If you have shared financial details, call the bank or the credit card company immediately to stop or deactivate any payments.
