Re: Spam / Phishing from PN

Have received 2 subsequent phishing emails.  The latest with an address of customerservice@rice.edu  Have forwarded them up to the abuse@plus.net address.  I hope they won't be rejected as my earlier submission was.  Any idea why PlusNet customers are being targeted so heavily today?

Scam Email?

Received an email from: supportplus@axa-insurance.co.uk stating:

This is a notification regarding your last month invoice. It looks like you missed a payment. Don't worry, you can pay safely and securely online. Please note: this service will suspended in 48hours after receiving this message in case the payment is not done.
 
Is this you?  I am presuming it isn't.

Re: Scam Email?

I've just got the exact same message from Plus.net service. Clearly a scam to get you to click on the link.

Re: Scam Email?

Just got 2 of these.  Fortunately I am one of those people who keep close check on money, so had all my details, dates, payments etc.  What really alerted me we received 2 emails, one to what Plus Net has as our contact, and a second one which is just my personal email.  Anyway we don't owe anything, but I can see how some people can still be so gullible, and follow through to payment.  I did ring Plus Net to double check the account was clear, just in case, and mentioned to them about other emails I had reported regarding messages to say Plus Net were holding a suspicious email, and to click on a link to get the email.  There were a few of those, and now this, reported these too, is anyone interested at Plus Net?  I just ask because overall we get a few of these sort of emails from a bogus Plus Net, and as a company I would be interested why I was being targeted, and is it that easy for hackers to access Plus Net subscriber emails?  I don't have a great understanding of technology, but wouldn't you be a little curious if you were running the company?

Re: Spam / Phishing from PN

I've also just received one. Have forwarded to abuse@plus.net.

 

The thing which marginally concerns me is whether there may have been a data breach at Axa, as it looks like a few people have had an email purporting to come from there. If they found email addresses, it would be easy then to target anyone with a *.plus.com email address with a message about plusnet.

Re: Spam / Phishing from PN

Hi PN, can/will you do something about abuse@plus.net not accepting these messages please? It makes that email address completely useless if it won't accept these suspect mails Cry

I was v. lucky in getting mine looked at as 'Darkfire' gave me an email that *would* accept it.

Best,

Ray.

Watch out for email phishing scams supposedly from plusnet

I've just received this email below at a few of my plusnet email alias addresses (correct addresses).

The senders email is "Plus.net Service <supportplus@axa-insurance.co.uk>"

and the link included is "https://vanillagroup.in/plusnet.php"

The source includes this

Received: from axa-insurance.co.uk ([81.174.162.4])
	by smtp with ESMTP
	id yzrneAQ4gy3jiyzrpeXNSf; Thu, 22 Mar 2018 13:02:54 +0000

 

Obviously a phishing scam.  It seems there is no other way to report them.

Re: Watch out for email phishing scams supposedly from plusnet

It seems this has been reported before and the answer is to forward the offending emails to " abuse@plus.net "

This I have now done.
