A typical identity theft or phishing technique but it didn't fool me. Here's how a phish usual works. The fraudster sends out an officially looking email that makes the potential victim feel concerned enough to want to reply to it. And when you do, you're also asked to disclose some personal details like your password or financial information. That should make you wary enough because once you give these details away, your credit will be wiped clean.
In this case, the fraudster had even given these three easy steps to follow:
- Login to your account by clicking on the link below
- Provide requested information to ensure you are the owner of the account
- Find this transaction in HISTORY and click 'Cancel Transaction'
