Beware of "Alibaba Group - Your Cancellation" Phishing Scams

Alibaba's customers, be aware of phishing cancellation emails like the one below that are being sent by cyber criminals/scammers to potential victims. The phishing emails steal Alibaba customers' usernames and passwords by tricking them into clicking on a link within same emails that go to a fake Alibaba website. The fake website will ask visitors to sign in with their Alibaba's usernames and passwords. But, any attempt to sign into the fake web page will send the visitors' usernames and passwords( credentials ) to the cybercriminals behind the scam. Once the cybercriminals have gotten the stolen credentials, they will use it to gain access to their potential victims' Alibaba accounts, hijack and use them fraudulently.

It is recommended that Alibaba customers go directly to www.alibaba.com to sign into their accounts, instead of clicking on a link in an e-mail message. Once they have signed in, they will be notified of cancellations, updates or other important messages, if there are any.
