Hi-tech Phishing scams - MUST READ
I tried pasting an email here but unfortunately it doesnt look the same in this format. Basically it was a warning from our IT department about how sophisticated Phishing scams have become and how authentic they can look.
The thing that dropped my jaw was it was an adress change confirmation from AT&T, the web adress to respond to was shown as AT&T | Cell Phones, U-verse, Digital TV, DSL Internet, and Phone Service but if you clicked on it they showed where you would actually go. It was to a private server at a completely different adress.
BE CAREFUL. I normally spot these things a mile away, even the good ones, but this looked exactly like the real thing right down to the fine details, only the senders email adress would have tipped me but it is only a matter of time before they can fake that too.
Our IT dept recommends typing the correct adress into your browser adress bar on any email request to ensure that you get routed to the actual company you want to contact instead of some scammer.
