Once the cybercriminals have gotten their potential victims' Alibaba accounts, they will gain access to, hijack their accounts, and use them fraudulently. Therefore recipients who have been tricked by the phishing scam are asked to change their Alibaba account passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.
This is why online users should not click on a link in an email message to sign into their Alibaba accounts. They should instead go directly to Alibaba's website at https://www.alibaba.com/ and sign-in from there. Once they have signed into their accounts, they will be able to view products and important notifications if there are any.
Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers or other information in samples on this website may have been impersonated or spoofed.
