Online users who have been tricked by the scam are asked to do the following:

  • those who have submitted their personal information are asked to be careful going forward because scammers will contact and attempt to scam them using the information that they have collected from the phishing scam
  • those who have used their credit cards are asked to contact their bank for help; they should let their banks know that they were tricked into using their credit cards on a fraudulent website.
