Tips to avoid being a victim of phishing
We cannot make these cases stop coming to you, but we do have a series of recommendations that you can follow when you receive a supposed alert or raffle again that uses the name of your trusted company.
- Take a good look at the email address or account name. If you receive a message, pay attention to the email address that sent it to you, specifically what comes after the “@”. If you notice something strange, delete the email.
- Look at the address of the web to which it redirects you. Normally these types of notifications come with a link in which they ask you to enter your data. If the url of this web page does not belong to the company that it is impersonating or is a mixture of letters, numbers and the name of that company, do not enter your data. To do this, take a good look at what appears before the last point, that is the real domain of the web page.
- Be careful if when you try to click on the elements of the web it does not direct you to any site or asks you to verify your data.
- Check with the sources before giving your data. These messages convey urgency so that you do not have time to react. Remember that you can ask the company itself, the Police or the Civil Guard or us through our whatsapp service
