Angie’s List Scam – Heads up!

Alert your users to be on the lookout for a phishing email allegedly from Angie’s List. The subject line is ‘Invoice xxxxx from Angie’s List, Inc.’ and the message body looks like a QuickBooks generated invoice for $216.64 or some similar amount. The message body starts with ‘Dear Valued Customer’ which should be your tip-off that it’s a bogus message – legitimate email messages will have your personal info.

There’s a ‘View Invoice’ button which, if clicked, takes you to a website that will infect your computer with malware. Just delete the message without clicking on anything.

Want to train your users to better recognize phishing scams like this? Contact us to learn about online Security Awareness Training. The cost to train and educate your entire company for a whole year is less than $750 for an organization with fewer than 50 employees.

Everyone stay safe out there!
