Please note that Securepoint never sends e-mails asking you to reply with your account or other personal data.
E-mail fraud is a common tool of identity thieves. An increasingly common fraudulent activity, called “phishing”, uses official-looking e-mails to deceive consumers into disclosing their personal data.
The e-mail often directs the recipient to a look-alike website of a legitimate business, tricking consumers into believing they are responding to a valid request.
Other fraudulent e-mails entice users to make a purchase and are designed primarily to obtain credit card or bank account information. Securepoint never sends e-mails asking you to reply with your account or other personal or financial information.
To avoid getting caught in any of these fraudulent activities, you are advised to:
