“Email Hacked” Scam

We have recently been getting a lot of calls from concerned people about their email has supposedly “been hacked”. Even we have received multiple copies of emails, claiming the same thing.

Sometimes these emails may show a password of yours, please do not be fooled they are only fishing.  Just ignore any mail except authentic sources that you trust. Often these types of scams will send out many lures and it is only if you bite that they may pose a threat.

There have been numerous reports to Netsafe regarding this latest scam, so treat this email scam like any other – Delete!

If you are concerned about anything being hacked a good step is to change passwords. If there is any truth to the claims then once you change your password, their access will be denied.
