Today’s discussion is about those emails that you receive but should be cautious about opening even if you are expecting it. We are referring to the “Docu-Sign” emails that are circulating around the internet. The email tells you that you have received an electronic document that requires you to open the electronic document and sign it, using the Docu-Sign feature. This is commonly found on an Adobe document (pdf).
On this document, there are many “red flags” that need to be addressed. First, is your name in the “TO” field? Second, do you recognize the email of the sender? Third, look at the web link provided – do you recognize the location and is it similar to the sender?
I received two requests on the same day, about 2 hours apart. They have almost the exact same wording, but have different senders.
If you click on the “Click Here to Review Documents” weblink, you will be taken to this website: http:// juancarlosreynoso. com/Admins
The second document is shown below. Note the similarities. The “Click Here to Review Documents” is the same on both documents, yet they have come from the same location.
If you had clicked on the link to open it, you will get the following menu. This is how the spammer will get your account information.
So, the solution is to look at your email, not just click on the link to open a document.
