Phishing Awareness: Samsung Recruitment SMS SCAM

The emails shown below might differ slightly from those that you receive, as fraudsters regularly update and modify them.

There are hundreds of scams doing their rounds daily and unfortunately these types of scams are virtually impossible to trace. Samsung in the past reported these activities to the SAPS, however, as no money has been exchanged; no case number could be obtained.

Phishing is a fraudulent process used by spammers to acquire sensitive information from users such as usernames, passwords and banking details. Email recipients are often deceived by phishing attempts since messages appear to be sent by legitimate and trustworthy sources.

In the event that you receive a message fitting this description or receive a message that appears to be spam, close the message immediately. However, some spam may occasionally get through to your inbox, so please use extreme caution.
