Cyber Scams Lurking About

Phishing: Fraudulent e-mails, which look like they are from a legitimate organization, requesting confidential information.

Vishing: Fraudulent calls, typically automated, which seem to be from a legitimate organization, requesting confidential information.

Pharming: A redirect to a fake website. Unlike phishing, you don’t click a link…you type in a URL. Pharming is phishing without a lure (a clickable e-mail link).

DO protect yourself:

- Never click “proceed” if you see a message like: Certificate does not match the address being visited.

- When in doubt, retype the URL you trust as real.

- If you can’t identify the sender, delete the e-mail.

- Hang up on suspicious callers, then notify the company they claim to represent.

Mal-ware: A computer program designed specifically to infect and damage your computer system, such as a virus. Use caution when opening e-mail or clicking a pop-up. Know the sender!

 

DON’T infect your computer/mobile device by:

- Opening e-mail from a source you don’t know.

- Clicking on a “suspicious” link or attachment, e.g., A friend shares a link for a weight loss video.

- Believing e-mails that contain misspellings, sensational promises, or urgent messages,

  e.g., You One a Million $! You have 10 minutes to claim your prize, click here.

- Clicking on a pop-up, e.g., Your computer is infected, CALL NOW!

  Not only does the thief steal your money, they get access to your entire computer.
