Phair warning against phishing phriends

The summer fishing season has settled in. But police are warning that some particu- lar types of phishermen are also trolling around the Internet looking for someone to hook with their phony email scams. The OPP Anti-Rackets Branch has posted an alert about phishing con ar- tists. Phishing is an email tactic used for identity theft. Phishing involves sending fake emails under the guise of an actual company, a government agency, or a non- profit group. Some phishing scams send emails from fake groups but with enough convincing detail in the email text tomake it seem legitimate. The phishing email will either suggest that the target’s account information is out of date or that something has happe- ned to the group’s information data files and that all clients need to renew their accounts. This particular phishing con is called “brand spoofing” and the aim is to get the target of the con to go to a website or reply to the email and provide perso- nal and financial identity information. The phisher then uses the information to

plunder the victim’s bank account or run up huge credit card debts. Last year, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (CAFC) received almost 2,500 com- plaints about phishing scams that cost vic- tims a combined total of almost $250,000. Anyone with a computer is urged to get their IT provider to make sure the anti- virus software is updated and the email filter and firewall enhanced to weed out most phishing emails. Users are urged not to reply to any email that asks for perso- nal identify or financial information.They should also be on the lookout for spelling or grammatical errors that indicate an email written in a hurry or by someone not familiar with the recipient’s native language. Phishing emails can be reported to the Internet provider and the police or the CAFC. The OPP Anti-Rackets Branch will take information at 705-329-6437.The Cri- meStoppers confidential tips line at 1-800- 222-8477 will also accept anonymous tips about phishing scams.
