I got an email for a receipt for something I didn’t buy. There was a link to click on if I didn’t authorize the purchase. Of course, I started the process–then filling out the information form, it asked for my social security number…I hesitated, started to put it in, then stopped and erased it
I ran this by my son who lives in California and works for the company I received the email from. I sent him a screen shot of the email, which his reply was ” Mom, customer is spelled wrong…” Looking closer, it was as well as the heading where it said Dear Customer instead of my first name.
I quickly changed my password but I’m still haunted by the fact how easily I was fooled. Lesson learned.
