What is Phishing?

1 min read

Fraudsters use a practice called phishing to get hold of your sensitive information, such as passwords, usernames, and credit card details. By impersonating legitimate companies, they send emails and links to tempt you to open fake websites. If you fall into their trap, you run the risk of infecting your computer with malware. Please remember that Coderons will never ask for your password or tell you to download any program.

Important: Coderons has several email domains, which are determined by our email service provider (ESP). We can assure you that emails from [email protected] and [email protected] are not phishing emails.

Note these warning signs that could be phishing messages:

  • Messages that are not addressed to you personally and display bad grammar and spelling mistakes.
  • A message that persuades you to act urgently,
  • Messages that want you to open an attachment or install a software update.
  • A third-party site that offers assistance with our products.

If you receive any such phishing emails, please forward the suspicious email to [email protected].

Whenever you receive a message on Coderons and suspect it to be a phishing attempt, please report it immediately. All you have to do is click the ‘More’ icon and then do one of these actions:

  • It’s spam or a scam
  • It’s a scam, phishing, or malware

Once you complete the above steps, you will no longer see the message in your inbox. You’ll also have the option to block the member.
