Reminder: Spoofing Emails

Many modern phishing attempts use the names and emails of  your contacts and business partners to try and fool you. Use these tips to avoid falling for these scams.

  • Carefully inspect all emails, even if it appears to be coming from someone you know.
  • Be vigilant and safe whenever you see links or attachments in your emails.
  • If you suspect that spam emails are being spoofed to look like they are from someone you know, contact that person through a different channel (phone, in-person, lync) and let them know.
  • If you suspect that someone is spoofing emails to look like they are from you, check in with your contacts and see if they have received anything suspicious. 
  • Make sure to report spoofing emails to SecurityInvestigations@gov.bc.ca.
