We have seen an increased amount of spoofing attempts as of late and wanted to provide some tips on how to detect these types of emails. Please note: We will never contact you via email asking you to click on any links or download any attachments. This is usually a good indication the email is illegitimate.
Whenever you are unsure if an email is legitimate you can place your mouse over the “Sender” and it will let you know what email address this email was sent from.
For instance: Below are some screenshots on some of the most recent scams that we have seen. The most recent spoofing attempt we’ve seen was the “Email storage limit has been exceeded” emails that were delivered this weekend. It looks somewhat legitimate but if you mouse over the “Sender” (see the screenshot below) you can see that it was sent from the fake email listed in the screenshot.
If you are unsure of a specific email you can also forward a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you to determine if the email is legitimate or not.
