Southern Title takes cybersecurity seriously! Wire fraud is rampant, scams are surreptitious and we want to share some tips to protect your information from fraudsters. Welcome to our Tech Tuesday!
Some of the latest social media phishing scams are making their way through Instagram right now. These attacks trick you into giving up your account’s login credentials so the bad guys can take over your account and further spread their malicious tricks.
Here’s how it works: You’ll receive a message from an Instagram user. The message claims they’ve seen some of your photos ranked on a “Hot List”, or even a so-called “Nasty List”. The message leads you to a fake Instagram account to see your ranking. The scammers include a dangerous, shortened link in their Instagram account profile, and use an enticing message to get you to click. Once you’ve clicked this link, you’re directed to a fake, but identical-looking Instagram login page. Don’t log in! If you enter your information here, it will be instantly sent to the bad guys.
Remember these tips when using social media platforms:
Stop, Look, and Think.
Don't be fooled.
