E-MAIL SCAMS ARE GETTING MORE SOPHISTICATED

Following the receipt of an email into IST from what looked to be PayPal stating "Your Account is Restricted Take Action" and addressed specifically to an ex-member of staff, it seems that E-mail scams are getting more sophisticated.

The message was addressed to Andrew Watkinson (ex IST staff member) and there is even a warning at the very end of the e-mail to induce trust - viz "How do I know this is not a Spoof email:"

Spoof or 'phishing' emails tend to have generic greetings such as "Dear PayPal member". Emails from PayPal will always address you by your first and last name." BUT, if you hover your cursor over any of the links, you will find that they all go to the same hyperlink – and it isn't Paypal!

Be aware of these types of scams especially is you use PayPal.
