Scam email: Go Via 'account statement' is a fake

Posted by Emmanuel Marshall on 20 March 2018 11:40:18 AEDT


MailGuard has detected an email scam impersonating Go Via. 

The message (see above) is designed to look like a real Go Via statement notification, with logo branding, etc.

This scam is being sent from multiple email accounts.

The message contains malicious links that point to compromised websites intended to harvest the personal data of victims.

Although the email accounts sending this message are not related to Go Via, the scammers who designed this attack have masked the sender email so it appears as ‘go via’ in the ‘from’ field.

Please keep an eye out for this email scam and delete this message if it shows up in your inbox.

 

Brandjacking


If your company’s email accounts aren’t protected, brandjacking emails are almost certainly being received by your staff.  Cybercriminals know we can be tricked; that’s why they send out millions of scam messages and put so much effort into making them look convincing. 

People are not machines; we are all capable of making bad judgement calls. Without email filtering protecting your business, it’s just a matter of time before someone in your organisation has a momentary lapse of judgement and clicks on the wrong thing.

For a few dollars per staff member per month, you can protect your business with MailGuard's predictive email security.
