KnowBe4 Scam of the Week: Beware Look-Alike Phishing Sites

The bad guys are changing their tactics and you need to be aware! They are now creating phishing sites that resemble the sign-in pages of popular companies.

They will try anything to get you to authenticate on their fake site. Some phishing sites will even try to fool you by appearing in your:

  • Pop-ups
  • Ads
  • Search results
  • Social media
  • Chat and IM applications
  • Rogue browser extensions
  • Web freeware
  • “Trusted” apps downloaded from app store

Don’t fall for this trick – the bad guys want you to give up your login credentials so it can be used as part of a larger attack! Make sure to always check a website for any signs that it may not be legitimate, or type in the company’s web address yourself.
