Emailing Issue (don't open emails sentence by emkei.cz) How To Prevent It


#1


SO basically three HSF users have been getting these weird emails and they were hacked. MobCraft has recently checked his spam folder and saw an email having to do with emkei.cz. CZ is code for the Czech Republic, but this has nothing to do with the Czech Republic, I'm pretty sure. Emkei.cz is a fake emailing service, and all emails sent with it are automatically put into the spam folder. If you see these emails, just delete them and don't look at them or open any links they may have. Don't respond either. If there's a way to, block emails from the website. Unless the Czech Republic made this website, they have nothing to do with this. Check all the links I put in the post above except for emkei.cz unless you wanna see the website.
Be careful and don't trust these websites.

Doubt that the Czech made it. Probobly just spam, so either ignore it or just don't check your spam folder lol


#3

It's a fake emailing websites that's taking the emails and identities of people and sending them to contacts


#4

Phishing site?

Does it ask for your email?


#5

It takes the identities and emails of the people that the emails are sent to.


#6

Well I guess we don't use throwaway mails then


#7

#8

I said that already....

Thank you for alerting me! Thank goodness...

These emails link you to a replication of Google. It asks you for your email and email password.

DO NOT ENTER IN ANY OF THIS INFORMATION.
DON'T CLICK ON THE EMAIL IN THE FIRST PLACE.

The site is not real. It will steal your personal info.


#11

Can't you put in a fake email and password


#12

Yes, sure, you can.

Just don't actually be fooled by the website and end up entering your credentials.


#13

If you click a suspicious link in an email, it can hack your email to send it to more people. just don't click suspicious emails at all.


#14

Thanks for the information! This is really scary, and it's good you let people know! :D
If I get an email I'll know what to do.

One time my Mom got an email saying that her credit card was hacked, and there was a link telling her to fix it. It was really convincing. The email was an exact replica of the credit company's emails, and when she clicked the link, it led her to a fake website. It looked super real, and it asked for her credit card number, her password, and all that personal info. My mom was about to enter it in, but then she noticed the website addr.ess. It was not the credit company's web addr.ess, and my Mom didn't think anything was wrong with her credit card. So, to all: be sure, before entering any personal info into a website, you check the website ad.dress!

True

Also never trust an email saying
1. You've won some cool prize (click here to view)
2. There's a problem with __ .
3. ... etc

They're only tricking you into giving your personal deets.


#17

Yeah, the same thing actually happened to me, as well. I ended giving away my password, but then immediately realized the mistake and changed my password.

I'm still very weary of this stuff... It's terrifying to me, to be honest.
