Submitted by | 1,528 views
phishing email scam

This is a classic example of a phishing email. This scammer is trying to impersonate Payza, a popular payment processsor. He used a proxy server as evidenced by the sender’s email (highlighted on the photo below): noreply@payza.com via lsh1018.lsh.siteprotect.com. Scammers are good in copying templates, logos, and many others to make it looks like an email originating from legitimate company they are trying to impersonate.

Wikipedia defines Phishing as “the act of attempting to acquire information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details (and sometimes, indirectly, money) by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Communications purporting to be from popular social web sites, auction sites, online payment processors or IT administrators are commonly used to lure the unsuspecting public. Phishing emails may contain links to websites that are infected with malware.

What to Do When You Receive a Phishing Email

1. Do not Click Any LINK. A scammer always hide the link using a text hyperlink. On the photo above, he used “Click here to Confirm Your Account Information.” An unsuspecting recipient is likely to click this.  This text hyperlink actually leads to h ttp://j.gs/2873112/payzacomloginsignuphelpdeskbusinessp which is not in any way related to Payza, the company he is trying to impersonate. It looks like an application trying to capture your email and log-in information. Once you put in your details on their landing page, they will be successful and hacking your account. They can then runaway with your money.

2. Mark it as a SPAM and Delete Immediately.  Marking it as a spam will let your email filter all emails coming from this scammer if he uses the same email.

3. Warn your Friends Who Likely To Receive This Phishing Email.  I suggest that you let email slip by. Get a screenshot and share it using social media. Let your contacts and friends know about this before they will fall victim. You can save their hard earn money into going the the scammer’s account.

The internet is a powerful tool but take the necessary vigilance to protect yourself.
