Egg email scam - Egg Card Phishing Emails

I don’t have much time to write much about the egg card phishing scam, but I wanted to quickly post a phish scam warning to egg card holders.

I received a phishing scam from the email address egg@e-mail.egg.com today, with the Subject line, Egg Card Notification. This is a phishing scam - Don’t follow the link and don’t enter any personal details. This is not from Egg - it is a scam!

Egg Phishing Scam

The email reads:

You have a new message waiting for you in the secure area of the Egg website.Being able to send secure messages allows us to contact each other securely with information specific to you and your accounts.If you haven’t used this service before, you’ll find it’s really easy.

Here you’ll find any new messages you have waiting for you and if you want to get in touch with us or reply to any new messages from us, you can do so from here too.

You’ll find the option to ‘View your messages or send us a message’ from the ‘Your money’ area, once you’ve logged in.

(which actually goes to http://sys.cnu.ac.kr/bbs/images/login.aspx.htm)

As this e-mail is an automated message, we can’t reply to any e-mails sent by return.

Again, I don’t have time to go into the whys or wherefors, but if you receive an Egg Card Notification type email, delete it immediately. Don’t follow the link - don’t even open it. It’s a scam - the scum that sent it are simply after your personal details - and there’s always the chance that on top of that, they’ll drop a trojan into your machine as you click the link.

You have been warned! Now have a fabulous day!

Egg Card Notification Email
My Egg card is due for renewal and although the notification email I received didn’t have my personal details on it, nor a company address or registration details on it, I was worried enough to check to see if it was a phishing scam and I found your egg card phish warning. I feel silly now, but thanks.
