Protecting Yourself from Phishing Scams: What You Need to Know

Phishing scams are fraudulent attempts to obtain personal or financial information by posing as trustworthy entities. They can appear as emails, messages, or websites, often enticing victims with offers of free money or alarming warnings. At Eversend, we are committed to helping you stay safe online. Here’s what you need to know:

Recognizing Phishing  Scams and Attempts

  • Messages Claiming You’ve Won Money: Beware of emails or messages stating you have won a prize or money. These may direct you to log in on a fraudulent website, where they aim to capture details like email addresses, PINs, or passwords.
  • Unfamiliar Email Addresses: Scammers will use a suspicious or unknown email address.
  • Spelling and Grammatical Errors: Look for obvious mistakes in the text.
  • Mismatched URLs: Hover over links to see where they lead. Make sure the URL matches the legitimate domain. We will never contact you and ask you to log into a website.
