Black Friday and Cyber Monday Scam – Phishing Email

In News by Bembridge PC

ONLINE SHOPPING – Beware of phishing emails from unknown shops, offering good deals as part of Black Friday & Cyber Monday. Criminals can clone websites and post them under different web addresses so they look official. Do your research, have others used the site & what was their experience. Search for both the website address and the name that appears on the website’s branding as the two may be different. If different reviews come back for both, this should be considered suspicious. If in doubt look at NCSC guidance for online shopping www.ncsc.gov.uk/guidance/shopping-online-securely

Example: Cloned website whose address is not related to the shops name.
