Phishing through Emails is the most easy way to connect to an investor or anybody. Last year, cyber criminals stole $676 million through phishing scams. Pattrick Peterson, the founder and CEO of Agari said "Email's original sin is this: Anyone can send anything to anybody and there's no way to see if the link, or the attached spreadsheet, is malicious," he says. Criminals send emails to thousands of people, sometimes millions. And if they are able to attract only two or three people, they can make huge amounts of money.
Agari’s CEO in an interview said that emails make almost 50% of the total phishing scams that are happening right now. An infiltrator will most likely access you email ID and find out which kind of business you conduct and most likely will get access to all your information. The next thing that he will do is send you an email with a link. As soon as you click that link and share your information, that hacker will access all your information.
One thing that the cyber criminals may do is that they send an email, which look likes been sent from an official website. But it won’t be from an official website address. So imagine receiving an email that looks like an official template from Tradebits. The subject line will also state Tradebits but the email would require you to provide your personal information. There is one way to find if such an email is from Tradebits. The domain address of such an email address is an important indicator. Such phishing email address would be like email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org. Both of these domain endings do not belong to Tradebits. Any official email should be like email@example.com
Please avoid clicking links from spam emails, and unknown websites. Tradebits will never send you an email asking for your passwords and such personal credentials. When filling out your information in a form anywhere on the internet, make sure the link is authentic. If filling in your password details are required in a form, chances are you are on a phishing page.
