I don’t know about you my social media friends, but it’s been a long time since i’ve been offered a ‘Crystal Product’… 🤣😂…I don’t think it has the same meaning these days…

You guessed it, Fran’s Gone Phishing and he’s reeled in a real diamond in the rough today.

My interest was peaked when I first saw that sender address enter my inbox…GemSaler… hmmm, not sure this is going to be something I’ve legitimately expressed interest in.

Regular viewers will note that this is quite a standard phishing attack approach where the attacker seeks to prompt you into clicking on a link embedded in the email through a ‘i’ve tried to contact you multiple times’ strategy.

The warning signs here should be that:

– You don’t know the Sending Business
– You don’t recognise the Sending E-mail Address
– Communication is overly familiar

Overall, it’s pretty standard and not as good as many of the phishing attacks we’ve commented on during our series.

3/10.
