E* doesn't ask for your acct # they already have it. So don't give it. They didn't ask me when I was asked to be a beta tester.I just received an e-mail asking for a DISH Network account number from a gmail.com address. This seems rather suspicious though I did sign up for a DISHOnline beta test. Does anyone know whether or not this is legitimate?
Maybe you should intentionally hit "Reply To All" and warn everyone else that got this email that the whole thing is a scam.
Why would the message come from a gmail account? This just screams phishing attempt.I have a feeling it was legit.. but someone should have used BCC. I recognize about 80% of the email addresses and names on the list.
What I find strange is I am already using DISHONLINE without issues...
My exact thoughts on the red flags... 10 kinds of wrong with that email. So I had to hit reply to all with my thoughtsMaybe you should intentionally hit "Reply To All" and warn everyone else that got this email that the whole thing is a scam.
A legitimate company would never send a group email like that -- everyone would get an individual message that doesn't reveal other subscribers' email addresses. This is obviously a scam, no question. It's just another phishing attempt.
The obvious red flags:
* Sending out a group email that reveals a bunch of other subscribers' email addresses.
* An email asking for your account information.
* Using a free public e-mail service instead of a company-owned domain name.
The only typical phishing red flag they missed is the typical atrocious spelling.
It's a scam, pure and simple.
