New phishing scheme hitting inboxes


Phishing alert! Our fraud team is reporting a new round of phishing emails.

This email has many of the classic hallmarks of a phishing attempt. It tries scare tactics, the grammar/punctuation is awkward, and it includes a link where you can “take action” to prevent the implied threat. Check it out:

Remember: always think twice about account threats, don’t click links, and make sure the “from” email address matches the sender name. If you clicked the link and provided information, please change your password immediately. TDS will never ask you to verify or solicit personal information via email.

For more information about phishing scams, we have a variety of resources:
