The bad guys are already testing their scams for the 2020 Olympics. They plan to send you a phishing email offering you tickets to the event or Olympic-themed gifts.
They will use social engineering tactics, such as placing the phrase “tokyo2020” in URLs or in their sender email address to trick you. Their goal is to compromise your computer or smartphone to access your bank account details.
The bad guys have over a year to perfect this scam, so you need to stay vigilant! Don’t click on links in event-themed emails, texts, or instant messages. If you are sent a suspicious email, delete the email or follow the reporting procedures put in place by your organization.
Let’s stay safe out there!
Stop, Look, and Think. Don’t be fooled.
