Phishing Email from Vodafone

Posted on May 16th, 2013

While checking my email I noticed an email from Vodafone, which had the subject heading ‘Importance Notice About Your Vodafone Account’.

On checking the message I discovered it to be a phishing attack. I first suspected this due to the wording of the email, but my suspicions were confirmed by simply hovering over ‘View Your Message’, where it showed a website address which was not www.vodafone.co.uk (as you can see below) indicating that the email was trying to gain the username and password for my account.

When you receive an email from someone trying to get you to login to your account, it is always worth checking the website address to make sure it’s the correct website.
