Fake Authentication Emails on the Rise

Here are a few tricks to identifying these fake email alerts.

First look at the FROM address. If it isn’t from the domain name you are expecting then most likely it is bogus.

In this example the FROM address shows it is from a bar and grill domain name.

Next look at the “Payload” link – the thing they are trying to get you to click on. In this case it is the Blue Verification box. If you hold your mouse over the link in the email you will see a popup window showing the path. Look at the domain name within that path. You will see it doesn’t not go to a logical email server address or domain name you recognize.

If the email were truly from your email provider these elements would be more logical.
