Phishing activity is increasing

Question asked by purche on Dec 19, 2014

I have received three emails in the last 15 hours phishing for my shaw account information. The graphics and content are surprisingly good as is the language.

I have reported this to Abuse but this info needs to get out there to protect your/our clients.

Today's email came from the Netherlands (IP 83.137.195.186), yesterday from Netherlands (IP 159.253.3.108) and UK (IP 176.67.167.71).

The content is as below (italics are mine) without the graphics which are very true to Shaw and was marked as Shaw Suspected Junk Email but ....

 

"We recently wrote to inform you that your last payment was declined. This is your second notice. We were unable to process your payment for your Shaw Service.

You must update your billing information immediately in order to avoid any interruption to your services

You can update your billing information online simply by clicking the link below:
