The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the FBI Cyber Division recently released alerts warning people of COVID-related scams.
According to the FBI, cybercriminals are targeting employees with fake termination phishing emails and video conferencing invitations as a result of COVID-19 downsizing. Emails contain malicious links and ask victims to provide personal information. Messages and meeting notices may include vague, attention-grabbing subject lines such as, “Termination Review Meeting.”
In addition, the FTC issued a warning on text message scams where scammers pretend to be the department of public health alerting you that you’ve been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19 via text message (example pictured right). In the message, there’s a fraudulent link. Clicking that link will download software where scammers could access personal and financial information.
Please be wary of any COVID related emails and text messages from unknown sources. Do not click on any links where you are unsure of the sender. If you have clicked on a similar link before and provided information, you should contact your service provider immediately.
