Phishing scams have been around for quite some time & scam artists get smarter by the day. For those who may not be familiar with what a phishing scam is it an attempt to obtain private information such as usernames, passwords, credit card information & any personal information intended for malicious use, by disguising as a trustworthy company via electronic communication.
It's important to try to stay ahead of them & not get sucked into their web of lies. We wanted to bring light to a phishing scam going around recently in which they have done a great job at disguising themselves. They are imposing as cPanel which is a popular online Linux-based web hosting control panel where they specialize in web hosting. They are spamming emails with notifications that your domain is pending suspension. They are asking you to click on a link provided to avoid service interruption. The email is even showing that is it coming from cpanel.net, but none of these are valid links or email sources. Before clicking on any kinds of links do your research & contact the company directly. By making one minior mistake your personal information can be spread across the web in a matter of seconds!
