Protect Yourself from Phishing

These days, it’s quite possible that you receive emails that appear to be from, but are in fact coming from an untrustworthy source and could put you at risk.

These emails can even come from a valid address. They usually ask you to click a link that will take you to a false website where you need to enter personal information such as username, password or credit card number. Beware, this is called a phishing attack, an attempt to steal your identity information that will be later used to commit fraud.
Identify Fraudulent Emails

Usually the emails describe a serious problem with your account. For example: ‘Your account will be canceled if you do not respond’.
You are requested to confirm your account information by clicking on a link from the email.
The embedded link looks genuine because it contains our logo and name. Our real website is only hosted on the “” domain.
There may be obvious grammatical or spelling errors. These errors help spoofed email pass through spam filters.

Protect Yourself

Do not click on links in unsolicited emails: We will NEVER ask you to verify your account information via an unsolicited email.
Do not “unsubscribe” from unsolicited emails: Never follow any instructions in an unsolicited email that claims to ‘unsubscribe’ you from a mailing list. They use this tactic to create a list of active email addresses. Just delete the thing.
Keep track of your account transactions: If you do not recognize a transaction or suspect fraud, contact us immediately.
