Phishing. False mail where a company that works for one city council, entity, another is supplanted...
Features: You receive an email from someone who pretends to be a company that provides services for another company, city council. The email address is not the same as they had been used on other occasions, however, the new address used in the scam contains the company name.
The mail has a letter from the alleged company, which reports a change of bank account to be able to make the payments of the invoices. If the company / city council does not suspect that it is a scam, you can pay and fall into the scam.
With phishing you also want to get your personal information fraudulently, by supplanting a public entity or company and through mail or instant messaging applications, usually with the aim of making a profit.
- In the face of such messages, if they are detected in time, it is better not to open the message and in case of opening the message do not enter any link that may contain, or give personal data.
- We trust mails from companies that inform us that they have changed their current account in order to make a profit. If in doubt, you must contact the company to confirm the information received.
