Scams & PHISHING

WHAT IS A PHISHING SCAM?

Phishing is a fraudulent attempt by a third party to steal your personal information, usually made through email, or text messages.

STEPS TO AVOID BEING A VICTIM OF A PHISHING ATTACK:
  • Delete spam emails immediately. Even a request to remove your email address from the mailing list will confirm to the fraudsters that your email account is active, and could open you up to more attacks
  • Never open an email attachment unless you know who sent the message
  • Use the latest browsers which come with filters that alert you when you visit a website that contains potentially unsafe website
  • Never navigate to our site using a link from an email – always type in the address (www.pollenfinance.co.za)
  • Never reply to these emails, and don’t click on any links
