New old scam

Julie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

Look out for a new old scan doing the e-rounds. My friend received this.

It looks like an email from Spark, telling the recipient (addressed simply as “Hello”), Spark is upgrading their email system, and to use the link to login. DON’T DO IT!

A few of tips for what to look out for with scams.
1) Not personally addressed to you.
2) not coming through directly from your account (I.e. My Spark or Powershop notifications).
3) if you click on the senders name the address isn’t from that company.
4) the email asks you to click on links in the email to take you to your account (most will say go to the website and login).
5) there is a time limit for the link or to act.
