Email Cpanel Scam
Beware the Email Cpanel Scam. Ive actually recieved it a couple of times and as its not an isolated thing i thought i would share it to let people know it is infact a scam and to beware.
Please click on the below image to enlarge, this is what the scam looks like. I almost fell for it but as always i inspected the email and found the sender and also the url links do not infact link to anything related to cpanel themselves. The message reads something like this:
“Due to the system maintenance, we kindly ask you to take a few minutes to confirm your FTP details,” one message reads. “Please confirm your FTP details by using the link below.”
I urge everyone to please delete this email, better still ‘Mark it as spam’ so you don’t receive it again.
What does the Email Cpanel Scam do ?
Looking into it, it seems they want your Cpanel details to get into your cpanel account, this is very bad. If someone has your cpanel details they have the potential of literally DELETING YOUR WEBSITE, DELETING YOUR EMAILS.
Whilst the email cpanel scam is directly not malicious it does ask for important details that can then cause a lot of harm and grief.[sharethis]
