Phishing emails meant to steal email credentials continues to get through our mailboxes. In our industry, anything to do with closing files gets the easy catch - familiar words used in subject lines, body copy, and attachments. Hackers know and use our timing to their advantage; they know the ends of the week and month are the busiest time for us. That’s when we’re more stressed and most vulnerable. Remember:
Examples of how these emails may look
In examples 1 and 4, if you click on the link, you’ll land on the website with every possible login option, as examples 2 and 5 show. That’s a pretty sneaky way to try and steal information. In examples 3 and 6, once you enter your password, the hacker has access to your email account. If you went all the way through, now would be a good time to reset your password.
