Phishing "Protect urself" Know What Hackers Do !This is a featured page



Phishing continues to be one of the most significant security threats facing Internet users. During 2007, scammers distributed millions of phishing scam emails that targeted many different entities. Phishing attacks are sure to continue in 2008 and scammers will use such attacks to steal money and identities from many new victims around the world. Armed with a little knowledge about how phishing scams work, however, you can ensure that you do not become one of these victims. phishing-scammer.jpg
Phishing scammers continue to find new victims all around the world

A phishing scam is one in which victims are tricked into providing personal information such as account numbers, passwords and credit card details to what they believe to be a legitimate company or organization. In order to carry out this trick, the scammers often create a "look-a-like" webpage that is designed to resemble the target company's official website. Typically, emails are used as "bait" in order to get the potential victim to visit the bogus website. The emails use various devious ruses to trick readers into clicking on the included links, thereby opening the bogus website. Information submitted on these bogus websites is harvested by the scammers and may then be used to steal funds from the user's accounts and/or steal the victim's identity.

Phishing scam emails are created to give the illusion that they have been sent by a legitimate institution. Emails may arrive in HTML format and include logos, styling, contact and copyright information virtually identical to those used by the targeted institution. To further create the illusion of legitimacy, some of the secondary links in these bogus emails may lead to the institution's genuine website. However, one or more of the hyperlinks featured in the body of the email will point to the fraudulent website.

Links in phishing scam messages are often disguised to make it appear that they lead to the genuine institution site. The sender address of the email may also be disguised in such a way that it appears to have originated from the targeted company. Because they are sent in bulk to many recipients, scam emails use generic greetings such as "Dear account holder" or "Dear [targeted institution] customer". If an institution needed to contact a customer about some aspect of his or her account, the contact email would address the customer by name.

Any time you receive a message telling you you have won a contest you did not enter, it is a scam.
Report yahoo phishing email:
If you received an email that says it's from Yahoo! or another trusted source but you suspect it might be a phishing email, forward the email to phishing@cc.yahoo-inc.com.

Definitely, the first 2 messages were "phishing" -- asking you to enter your ID/password on some hacker's web-site.

The 3rd message could be legitimate.
Do *NOT* "click" on any hyperlinks in the message.
Instead, access the web-site (WebMail or online-banking),
login, confirm your details, and update them, if necessary.

Non delivery of order


Assuming it was a legitimate email and not a phishing attempt, there should have been instructions included in the email. If not, please contact the shipper. FixYa has no access to another company's shipping information, even if you had taken the time to name the company.

Rose.morgillo@yahoo.comI am trying to get on facebook and cannot get on. I get on every day and have no problem. can you tell me why I have a problem now.


If facebook team find something unusual activity with your facebook account like sending messages to a large group of friends, They will temporarily shut off your account for suspecting of spamming and phishing and it will took it 24 hours for confirmation. If your account was cleared, it will be available again after that period.

However, if they verified that your account is phished and or sending multiple spams, most probably it will be blocked.

If you feel that your account was not phished or spamming but then its blocked, you can send email to disabled@facebook.com. Bring your issued with them and ask them the reasons why they block your account. Enabling your account is only once so make sure you know the reasons why they shut you off so it will not happen again.

If this solve your problem, please comeback and rate this solution. Thank you for using Fixya.

Hi!

The smartest idea would be to contact Yahoo itself and explain that you've been the target of a "phishing" attack.

Here is the link to the report form. Good luck.
