The link in the phishing email message goes to a fake or phishing SBCGlobal website, which will attempt to trick the potential victims into entering their usernames and passwords on it. If SBCGlobal users attempt to sign into the phishing website with their SBCGlobal usernames and passwords, it will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the email scam, who will use the information to hijack their accounts. The hijacked SBCGlobal accounts will then be used by cybercriminals fraudulently.

Remember, if you receive email messages like these, please go directly to your email account instead of clicking on the links in the email messages. If there is something wrong with your account, it will be shown to you after signing in. And, if you were tricked by one of these phishing scams, please change your password immediately before your SBCGlobal account is hijacked.

For victims whose accounts have already been hijacked, they should contact SBCGlobal for help.
