Instead of clicking on a link to sign into their accounts, online users should always go directly to their e-mail account providers’ websites and sign into their accounts from there. Once they are signed in, they will be notified of updates, changes or things they need to do.
Online users who have already been tricked by the phishing e-mails are asked to change their passwords immediately before their e-mail accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently. For those online users whose e-mail accounts have already been hijacked, are asked to contact their I.T support team or email providers for help.
