Beware GDPR Scams

Standard

Yesterday, I posted What’s With All The Privacy Updates?  I was referring to all of the messages being sent this week, updating privacy policies and asking you to confirm email subscriptions as a result of GDPR going in to effect on Friday.

To no surprise, the scammers are right on top of this, sending their own messages, seeming to be related to this, but trying to trick you into revealing your credentials to sites you visit.

GDPRPhishIf you get a message from a company asking you to confirm their privacy policy or your email subscriptions or anything related to your identity, DO NOT click on the links in the message.  Go to the actual website and look for the places where you would normally update your settings and see if you are being asked to do so.  Otherwise, you may find yourself landing on a fake site that’s sole purpose is to get you to enter personal information and credentials that will compromise your identity.
