KnowBe4 Scam of the Week: Your Package Is on Its Way, but Not the One You Expected

The bad guys are sending you a package, but don’t fall for it - it’s a trap! What? That’s right, the bad guys have a new scam and it involves tracking your shipments.

Suppose you’re expecting a package from a well-known delivery company, and you receive a seemingly legitimate email from the company offering a way for you to track your delivery by clicking a link. You click on the link to check on your delivery, but instead, you unleash an unwanted package - an executable file that compromises your computer.

Avoid becoming a victim! Always check the credentials of incoming emails, and never click on a link or executable file unless you know the sender is legitimate.

 

Let's stay safe out there!

Stop, Look, and Think. Don't be fooled.
