Voucher for one free scam

As the holiday season approaches, scammers are taking advantage of everyone’s festive mood. A very enticing phishing attack is claiming to give out free store vouchers for holidays, if you fill out a form. There is an embedded link in the email that supposedly leads you to a validation page, but instead leads to a phishing site. Net-security has more information on this voucher scam.

Do not fall for the holiday scams. If it is too good to be true, it probably is. Never give out your personal information over email. And, especially during the holiday season, make sure to double check all URLs when you are doing financial transactions. It is always safer to manually enter the URL.
