“Your Password Has Expired” Scam

0

Have you received a very official-looking email that says “your password has expired” or “change your password now”?

Before you investigate, be aware that phishers are using this clever scam to target users to gain access to your online account and data. The FTC and IRTC reminds users to avoid clicking on any links via email, avoid reusing passwords, and change passwords through the verified website and never through email.
