Don’t Click On Email Or Links Contained In Delta Airline Email

As the holiday travel season starts to kick into high gear, Delta Airlines is alerting people not to click on links or files in Emails that claim to originate from them, as this is one of the latest phishing attacks unleashed on the internet.

The Email is designed to fool recipients into clicking on an infected link or file by claiming that  you’ve purchased a Delta ticket, a credit card has been charged and/or an invoice or receipt is attached to the email. If you get one of these Emails, be sure to immediately delete the message and most definitely, do not click on anything contained in the message!

Delta confirmed they didn’t send these Email messages and advise customers to avoid opening or clicking on any links in this Email, to delete the message immediately and to change the PIN number associated with their SkyMiles card, as well as monitor their account for any misuse. They further assured that customer’s credit cards haven’t been charged as a result of this Email and anyone with questions or concerns should contact them by phone.

The cost of being caught up in a phishing attack can be great and could include computer damage, financial loss or even identity theft. All of these outcomes are bad.

Protecting yourself from receiving these types of malicious  correspondences using cloud based Email security software prevents this type of Email message from being delivered to your inbox in the first place, so you don’t have to worry about getting duped into clicking on something that you shouldn’t.

As always, stay diligent about what you click on in Emails to prevent a cyber attack on your computer and your financial life.

    Well if it isn’t one attack or exploit after another lately. More of these things seem to be happening daily now. It is difficult to even keep up with what to look for or watch out for. Thanks for the heads up.

  2. No question, Ray.

    It’s better to be safe than sorry these days.

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks for commenting Ray! The bigger problem is that these types of Emails are getting more devious in an effort to fool recipients.
    It’s easy to understand why someone might click on something when they’re caught off guard with something that looks legitimate.

    Darren, I was just reading a similar thing on Facebook the other day. This gal read this “alert” about how Facebook was going to be charging people after a specific date. To avoid having to pay, people were told to post a message on their FB account.

    Someone posted after her commment in Facebook, “I can’t believe people still fall for this garbage”. But there are many people that just not familiar with how things go viral and what’s real and what’s not.

    Nice post… Good reminders!

  5. No doubt, Chrisi. People are way too casual about clicking on items without investigating them first.

    These days a lot of hardcore criminals are using social engineering to get people to click and offer up personal information. If they do, watch out!

    Thanks for stopping by :)
