Identify a fake email
The purpose of this type of email is to get your personal information, such as credit or debit card numbers, document numbers or security passwords. These messages aim to look authentic by claiming to be sent by real companies. They even place the same graphics and designs of those companies. Some add links to fake websites very similar to the real ones, where they ask for your personal information.
Below we provide a list of elements that can help you identify them easily:
- The greeting: Many fake e-mails start with general greetings such as "Attention to: Pagadito User". Pagadito emails are always personalized.
- Urgency and threat about your account: These fake messages usually communicate that Pagadito has an urgent need to update and expand your personal information. Most of these fake e-mails threaten with immediate suspension of service or disabling your account. Pagadito would never request information by email
- Request for personal information: Be on the lookout for e-mails requesting personal information through links or forms included in the body of the message. This information may include your username and password, credit card or bank account number. Pagadito would never require the user to enter his or her password or username from an email. Pagadito directs you to the Login screen of the website when it involves an action that requires you to log in to your account.
- Links in the email: Always check the URL of the site that the link in the email takes you, make sure it is actually Pagadito's.
Once you have identified a fake email, we recommend:
- Do not reply to the message.
- Report it immediately, attach a copy of the message you received in your e-mail addressed to email@example.com.
- Delete the message from your email account.
By reporting a fake email, you are helping to safeguard Pagadito Users' integrity and security.
