Phishing and malicious emails

A phishing email is a favoured way for cyber criminals to get access to your sensitive information, such as your usernames and passwords, credit card details, bank account numbers, etc. This kind of email may look as if it has come from a trustworthy source, but will attempt to trick you into:

  • Clicking on a link that will infect your computer with malicious software
  • Following a link to a fake (but convincing looking) website that will steal your login details
  • Opening an attachment that will infect your computer.

However, you can protect yourself and your business by being aware of these scams, and by knowing what to look for that may help you identify a malicious email:

  • ncorrect spelling or grammar: legitimate organisations don’t always get it 100% right, but be suspicious of emails with basic errors.
  • The actual linked URL is different from the one displayed – hover your mouse over any links in an email (DON’T CLICK) to see if the actual URL is different.
  • The email asks for personal information that they should already have, or information that isn’t relevant to your business with them.
  • The email calls for urgent action. For example, “Your bank account will be closed if you don’t respond right away”. If you are not sure and want to check, then go directly to the bank’s website via the URL you would normally use, or phone them. Don’t click on the link in the email. The email says you’ve won a competition you didn’t enter, have a parcel waiting that you didn’t order, or promises huge rewards for your help. On the internet, if it sounds too good to be true then it probably isn’t true.
  • There are changes to how information is usually presented, for example an email is addressed to “Dear Sirs” or “Hello” instead of to you by name, the sending email address looks different or complex, or the content is not what you would usually expect.

If you receive any email communication that says from Easy but doesn’t look like trust worthy then please email us at phishing@easyaccountax.com and we will help you out.
