Beware of Fraudulent Emails (Phishing)

Email fraud is an increasingly common danger for unsuspecting online consumers and business users today

One of the most popular scams is the growing practice of "phishing." With phishing, the perpetrator uses email to lure you to fake Web sites (designed to look legitimate), where you're asked to disclose confidential personal information, like your AlertBoot user name and password.

Phishing scams are becoming more sophisticated and sometimes even include a phone component. In this latest twist, criminals include a telephone number in their emails rather than a Web site address. When a victim calls the number, a person or an automated system asks for your personal and/or account information.

AlertBoot will never contact you by email or phone asking you to reveal your user name and password.
