Beware of Fake LinkWorth Emails

Today we sent a system wide email to warn everyone of fake emails that are being sent. There seems to be confusion on the email we sent, so I wanted to also post it here on the blog to ensure everyone understands.

We were notified of phishing emails being sent to people that make it appear as if LinkWorth had sent it from support {at} linkworth, however, this was not us. If you get any sort of email saying your account with LinkWorth has been temporarily disabled and it asks you to download a file, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE FILE.

Here is one email that has been reported:

Dear Customer,

This e-mail was send by linkworth.com to notify you that we have temporanly prevented access to your account.

We have reasons to beleive that your account may have been accessed by someone else. Please run this file and Follow instructions:

(Link to file – not shown)

(C) linkworth.com

LinkWorth will never ask you to update personal and login information via email, nor download any sort of file. If you receive an email similar to this, please forward it to admin {at} linkworth {dot} com. This appears to be an isolated incident, but something we couldn’t just ignore.
