Warning of suspicious and fraudulent emails


With the rapid development of IT technologies, cases of internet fraud using phishing and spoofing increase remarkably. 

Using these instruments cybercriminals can inflict a great harm to companies or private persons.

The main goal of such attacks is to steal confidential information or to initiate a bank transfer by sending fake invoices, masking the sender as an absolutely different, well-known person.

Unfortunately, there is no effective way to protect from such attacks and all internet users practically risk to swallow the bait.

Recently, we have also become an object of such cyberattack; among other things, faked invoices and payment reminders were sent using the address of ELECTRONICON.

 

 

What to do if you receive suspicious emails?

 

1. In any case do not comply with the requests in this letter

 

2. Do not open attachments

 

3. Check the email address of the sender

 

4. Get in touch with your contact persons at ELECTRONICON by using your usual contacts and reconfirm the received email

 

 

Our Team will always be glad to assist you. Only together we can withstand such tricks of cybercrime.
