Scam and Phishing Emails

Estimated reading time: 1 min

“Phishing” is when scammers send emails or text messages to trick you into giving them your personal information. These emails and messages can impersonate a company or business.

Tips to avoid phishing and other scams

  • Make sure your internet browser is on www.afrosmartshop.com before signing in to your account or entering any personal information.
  • Don’t share sensitive account details such as your password or bank account number. Afrosmartshop will never ask you for your password, bank account, or IBAN number in an email.
  • Look for telltale signs of a phishing email, especially poor spelling and grammar or links requesting your password, bank account details, or credit card number. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with phishing email scams and how to recognize them here: http://www.onguardonline.gov/phishing
