The email message below with the subject: "Inactive account," which appears as if it was sent by LIME, and claims the recipients’ email accounts are inactive and might lead to closure, is a phishing scam. The fake email message was sent by cyber-criminals to trick the recipients into visiting a fake and phishing website that looks exactly like LIME’s, now FLOW, website. Once on the fake and phishing website, the potential victims will be asked to enter their email accounts’ credentials in order to sign in. Once the credentials are entered on the fake website, it will be sent to the cyber-criminals behind the scam. The cyber-criminals will then use stolen credentials to hijack the victims’ email accounts and use them fraudulently.
