Watch out for event phishing scams

KnowBe4 Scam of the Week: Watch Out For Popular Event Phishing Scams

Heads up! The bad guys are now trying to trick you into buying fake event tickets well above face-value. It's happening right now with the World Cup, but can happen with any popular event.

Here's how it works: They get you by offering last-minute ticket deals on a phony website, and then steal your credit card information. Don’t fall for this!

Only purchase tickets from official sources! Don't click on links in event-themed emails, texts, or instant messages. If you are sent a suspicious email, delete the email or follow the reporting procedures put in place by your organization.

 

Let's stay safe out there!

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