NOTE: You received this email because you are registered on Alibaba.com.
Once the cybercriminals have received their potentials victims' Alibaba credentials, they will use it to gain access to their accounts, hijack and use them fraudulently. Therefore, Alibaba merchants who were tricked by the phishing email message should change their Alibaba account password immediately and check their accounts for any descrepancies.
This is why Alibaba's merchants or customers should never click on a link to sign into their accounts, they should go directly to www.alibaba.com and sign-in from there instead. This will prevent them from visiting phishing websites that steal online account credentials, personal and financial information.
