Be wise to phishing

Phishing is the fastest growing type of internet fraud. A successful phish could con you into disclosing personal details, bank account information, credit or debit card details and more. Make sure you know how to avoid being phished. Here are some guidelines.

 

If you are ever unsure, type http://beta.credecard.com in the address bar.

 

credEcardplus will never send you a link in an e-mail to click on in order to access the credEcardplus Customer Portal.

 

Make sure you have SPF (Sender protection framework) enabled on your mail account. Any mails which are in your "Junk Mail", "Spam", "Pending" or "Held" mail box are NOT from credEcardplus. Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail and many others automatically put emails which do not pass the SPF check in your junk mail folder. Find out more about SPF at www.emailauthentication.org.
