"Taobao - Your Cancellation" Phishing Scams

Taobao'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 Taobao customers' usernames and passwords by tricking them into clicking on a link within same emails that go to a fake Taobao website. The fake website will ask visitors to sign in with their Taobao'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' Taobao accounts, hijack and use them fraudulently.

    I have an email saying that my taobao order has been cancelled - but I have not ordered anything from Taobo. Does anyone know what this means and should I be worried?

    • May 30, 2017 at 11:42 PM by info

      It is a scam or fake. Just delete the email.
