Latest Phishing – How do you know when it’s real

October 18th, 2017 by EKG Networking

Today’s latest in the phishing scam front.  Below is an example of the latest phishing scam.

How so you know it’s not real?

  1. Look at the email address it’s coming from.  It’s not Microsoft.
  2. Hover over but do not click the links, they do not go to any legitimate site.

When in doubt, delete it and go directly to the website you have a question about or ask your friendly IT person.

Office 365 deactivation notices – Fake

July 10th, 2017 by EKG Networking

Happy Monday.

And today another fake email to get in the way of productivity.

This is a quick one to ignore.

When you see an email saying it is coming from Microsoft Office 365 note the return email address.

It will obviously not be @microsoft.com.

The body will say something like:

  • A Request to deactivate your Mailbox (Mailbox name here) was made and this request will be processed shortly.
  • Sorry, we couldn’t validate your Office 365 subscription, so most features in your email have been disabled.
  • Please note that starting from July 10, 2017 we will be introducing new online authentication procedures in order to protect the private information of all Microsft-Account users.

All of these are fake emails designed to get you to click on the link and provide information to bad people.

Thanks to all who have let us know about them and NOT clicked.
