The link in the email message goes to the fake Maxicam Ltd Group or Dropbox website where visitors will be asked to sign-in with their email account credentials. But, any attempt to sign-in will result in the visitors' email account credentials beings sent to the cybercriminals responsible for the scam. Once the cybercriminals have received the stolen credentials, they will use it hijacked the email accounts and use them fraudulently. Now, any fraudulent activity done by the cyber criminals will be traced back to the owners of the email accounts, who have no idea that their accounts are being used fraudulently.
Therefore, if online users want to verify the legitimacy of a Maxicam Ltd Group email message, they should go to their legitimate website at http://www.maxicamuk.com/ and contact them using the contact information on it.
For online users who have already being tricked by the fake or phishing email message, are asked to change their email account's passwords immediately, before their email accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently by the cybercriminals behind the scam.
