Personal Data Security: Beware of Phishing Email Scams
The Federal Trade Commission has issued an alert specifically referencing Coronavirus phishing email scams. Please beware of fake email, texts, and social media alerts spoofing the World Health Organization, the CDC, and other organizations asking for
donations, linking to a breaking story, or selling products to take advantage of fears and the desire to assist those in need.
When reading messages online, we recommend you:
- Pay attention to the source of the message. Be wary of mail from sources you don’t know, and make sure the sender name matches the email address in the FROM: Field from known senders.
- Consider the intent of the message. If they ask you to click on a link, “hover” your mouse over a link without clicking on it to determine the actual website you will be sent to.
- Beware of “Too Good to be True” offers. If you see ads touting prevention, treatment, or cure claims for the coronavirus, for instance, consider that legitimate medical news would be widely publicized through valid news services, not
announced through a mass-mailed sales pitch.
