What is phishing and what should I do if I receive a suspicious email?

Phishing refers to a type of email scam that solicits your personal information. These fake emails usually impersonate a company or individual with whom you’ve already interacted, which gives it a semblance of legitimacy.  Phishing emailsare often used to gain access to your bank accounts, credit cards, or accounts, or passwords. 

Check out the “How to Protect Yourself From Phishing Emails” article from our blog that shows you how to spot phishing scams, along with suggestions on what you can do to prevent phishing attempts from happening to you. 

Please note that we will never ask you for your account password, bank account information, or full credit card number - whether by phone, email, or live chat. If you receive any suspicious emails from Spokeo, we encourage you to report them by contacting our Customer Care team.
