From time to time, online fraudsters will send emails pretending to be from companies you interact with or your bank. While these emails may seem convincing, they will often try and get you to share your personal information, such as login details, banking details, or credit card numbers.
Please be aware, FishServe will never send emails asking for your FishServe details, banking details, or credit / debit card number(s).
If you receive a suspicious email:
- CHECK to make sure that it has been sent by FishServe with the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
- DON'T click on any links, open any attachments, or install any updates.
- DON'T reply
- DON'T provide any personal information
