A fake promotional email, claiming to be from MasterCard SecureCode, offers a 16% discount on all purchases. This could be enough to tempt readers to sign up on the fake web site.
The email has a link to a web site that has been made to look the same as MasterCard’s web site with a form to sign up. The personal details entered here end up going to a scammer. Personal details including your credit card’s number, expiry date, 3 digit security code, and your date of birth.
If you receive an unsolicited email offering 16% discounts just delete it. And don’t click on links in these emails, instead go to a web browser and type in the address you need.
