Purolator Email Scam
How Do I know an email is a scam?
Sometimes it is so hard to catch an email scam before you open it. I just received an email that was routed to my junk folder and it took me quite a few google searches to find out if it was legit or not. I was fairly certain I didn’t have any packages that were being sent through Purolator but the email looks so convincing…I ALMOST opened it.
I did the usual checks like looking at the email address to see if it is legit and yup, it looked legit : Purolator <NotificationService@purolator.com>. How they get you is they put malicious code in the ‘Click Here for your label’ button.
It is a never ending battle with these scam artists and it is getting harder to figure them out. This is why I try and post what comes across my desk to help warn others that may not be as paranoid as I am with cyber security.
