AlertPay has reported about illegitimate e-mail campaign directed to AlertPay members. The phishing e-mails have appeared after the new improvements at AlertPay have been implemented, basically concerning the credit card processing. And hence phishing e-mails are more likely aimed at stealing personal account information. Inside the phishing e-mails there's a link that redirects AlertPay members to false login pages, and as the result it leads to stealing the info mentioned, followed by stealing the money actually.
The e-mails look very genuine, and offer to follow a link with the purpose of changing the profile. Still, if you take a closer look at the e-mail origin and the link, you are asked to follow, the scam gets obvious. Finding out the real destination of the link is very easy - without clicking the link, one just should point the mouse to it and see where it really leads. The destination is suspicious, not to say dangerous.
AlertPay asks every member remain highly attentive and careful, when dealing with any sort of e-mails, as if from AlertPay, with the offers to follow this or that link. As the reminder, AlertPay gives some examples of of the false information supplied by these emails:
Please be wary of any emails with subject lines such as the following:
AlertPay: Confirm your Email Address
Activation Your Alertpay Information
Account Has Been Limited!
And there's also a Sample e-mail of the one, NOT originated from AlertPay:
