Fake OneDrive Scam, yikes!
A new phishing scam has been discovered that pretends to be an alert from your email server that informs you that you have received an encrypted message. It then prompts you to login to a fake OneDrive site to read the message.
As phishing campaigns are getting easier to spot, scammers are becoming creative to trick people into entering their personal information.
An example of this scam is a new campaign that uses the subject line of “Encrypted Message Received” and pretends to be a notice from your mail server stating that you need to login in to read the message.
The text of the fake OneDrive phishing scam can read as below:
Encrypted Message Received :
You have received and encrypted email from : domain.com
View Encrypted Email
When the recipient clicks on “View Encrypted Email” they will be brought to a fake OneDrive for Business page that prompts you to click on an “Open” button to view the message.
When click on this you are brought to another page that looks like this:
Once you enter your email login credentials the attackers will be able to retrieve it later.
