Catch of the Day: Fake Forex Phish
Chef’s Special: Phishing Simulations
Examples of clever phish that made it past my spam filters and into my Inbox, or from clients, or reliable sources on the Internet.
I would be delighted to accept suspicious phishing examples from you. Please forward your email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
My intention is to provide a warning, examples of current phishing scams, related articles, and education about how these scams and exploits work, and how to detect them in your own inbox. If the pictures are too small or extend off the page, double-clicking on them will open them up in a photo viewer app.
Don’t believe fake copywrite violations emails, like the one below.
Unfortunately, the link redirects to an actual Facebook page set up for this exploit.
Fake Forex Phish
This one is interesting because they use a digital certificate and an https “secure” website to make this exploit look more authentic. But the certificate information does not provide any information about the certificate holder. There should be a lot more information provided to prove the authenicity of this certificate. I have provided the email, landing page, and certificate information for your review, below.
You probably back yourself not to be flattered or scared by a voice scammer – but what about vulnerable friends or relatives?
