Received e-mail below this week…Wouldn’t it be great if all phishing attempts were this obvious?
How are you doing and your family?
I shall require from you , your full names, address and phone numbers to start the process of claim in this regard. Do send me these details to barwonglee@******.com.hk for prompt and needed action
Again I guarantee that all is under control and you have nothing to worry about, Just grant to me your full cooperation and keep this transaction close at heart.
Of course many phishing attempts are more sophisticated and more professional looking and unfortunately more successful at tricking people into providing sensitive information. Managers at all levels would be doing themselves and their organization a lot of good if they shared examples of different types of phishing attempts so their people are prepared to protect personal and organizational information.
