o2 phishing scam.

Dear Watch Member,

We have previously alerted you to ‘phishing’ scam emails alledgedly from various organisations such as banks, energy/telecoms firms, paypal, Amazon etc. Please be aware of a recent email supposedly from o2.

As with many phishing scams, it begins with an email. The email purports to be a bill notification from O2, describing an unusually high balance and provides a link to ‘view your bill’. This email is designed to panic recipients into clicking the link to see how they’ve run up such a large bill. Instead, clicking the link downloads a program to your computer, which is what makes this attack more noteworthy than most.The most common type of phishing email will direct you to a fake website and ask you to enter your login details for that site. This means that the fraudsters have your login details for that site only. This latest attack is a less common kind of fraud, which downloads a program to your computer and could compromise you even more. Malware can be used for a number of things – for example, it could record your keystrokes, enabling fraudsters to piece together personal information and login details for other sites.

How can I spot it?

The most obvious and consistent difference is that these emails are addressed ‘Dear Customer’. O2 always address you by the name on your O2 account when they send you a bill.
