Double check that Zoom link: BBB warns of new phishing scams
HONOLULU (KHON2) – The video chatting service Zoom has become extremely popular due to the coronavirus pandemic. But it’s also getting popular with would-be scammers.
The Better Business Bureau says con artists are using old tricks in new phishing scams. Beware of any unsolicited messaged that seem to be from Zoom.
“You’re probably going to start to see some emails or even text messages that inform you that there’s something either wrong with your Zoom account, and you need to ‘click here’ to get it fixed, or welcoming you because you need to activate your Zoom account,” said Roseann Freitas, the Better Business Bureau Hawaii Marketplace Manager. “So just different ways that they’re trying to get you to click on that link.”
