Covid 19 Phishing Scams - How to prevent them

It's no surprise that the pandemic of Covid 19 has generated overwhelming amount of news coverage to keep people informed and ideally safe. However there are scammers out there to take advantage of the situation.

But how? The scammers send emails disguised as legitimate organizations with information about Covid 19. Majority of the time they will ask you to open an attachment to see the latest information or breaking news, but what you don't know is that the attachment is malicious software waiting to be downloaded onto your computer. Malware that could have access to your personal information, bank data, log your keystrokes, and much more.

The most common scheme they use is sending emails claiming to be from the CDC or WHO. Trust me, they are not going to email you personally, if you need latest and secure information go to trusted sites like coronavirus.gov or usa.gov/coronavirus .

Here is an example of a fake CDC email from the U.S. Health and Human Services website:

To stay safe, here is a check list of what to look out for when your check your email:

  • Always check the from email address or link.

  • Watch out for spelling and grammar errors.

  • Avoid emails that request for personal information.

  • Stay away from emails that insist you act now.

If you get into the habit of using the checklist above when checking your email, you'll be just fine. Stay safe out there, and God bless.
