Beware: fraudsters pretending to be our society

Dear Members,

We regret to inform you that our organization is currently experiencing a wave of phishing attacks targeting our users. Your online security and privacy are important to us, and we want to ensure that you remain well-informed and protected against these attempts.

Phishing attacks involve deceptive emails sent by cybercriminals who impersonate trusted entities to trick recipients into revealing sensitive information. These fraudulent emails often appear genuine, similar to our organization’s branding, and may include requests for personal details, account credentials, or financial information.

To safeguard yourself and our organization from potential harm, we strongly recommend that you take the following actions:

  1. Be sceptical of unsolicited emails: Exercise caution when you receive emails from unfamiliar senders or those that seem suspicious. Analyse and check the content carefully, especially requests for sensitive information or urgent actions.
  2. Verify the sender’s identity: Pay close attention to the email address and domain name of the sender. Phishing emails often use slight variations or cleverly disguised addresses. When you are not sure, reach out to our official channels to verify the legitimacy of the email.
  3. Exercise caution with email attachments and links: Avoid clicking on links or opening attachments from unknown or untrusted sources. Hover your cursor over links to verify the actual destination before interacting with them. Be careful with shortened URLs or URLs that seem unusual or misspelled.
  4. Review email content critically: Phishing emails often employ urgency, fear to prompt immediate action. Take a moment to assess the email’s content and be cautious of any unexpected requests for personal or financial information.
  5. Keep your software updated: Regularly update your operating system, antivirus software, and web browsers to ensure you have the latest security patches.
  6. Report suspicious emails: If you receive an email that appears to be a phishing attempt, promptly report it to our EAS Office. Do not reply to the email, click on any links, or provide any sensitive information.

Thank you for your attention and cooperation in this matter. We hope that together we will be able to confront this problem.
