I have received an email claiming to be from Vodafone warning me that my email account is going to be terminated, and asking me to click on a link and sign in to cancel the termination request. Is this a genuine email?
No this is not a genuine email from Vodafone.
With the news that Vodafone will stop providing email services on the 30th of November, scammers may try to take advantage of this and target our customers with different phishing scams purporting to be Vodafone. It may be confusing at times to determine if an email is legitimately sent from Vodafone or if it is a scam, please always remember that any emails from Vodafone regarding the closure of our email service will come from “Vodafone”, and if you attempt to reply the email address will be firstname.lastname@example.org. Any links in the email will direct you to links.vodafone.co.nz or pages.vodafone.co.nz.
If you are unsure please contact us to confirm before responding, clicking on any links, or providing your details, especially your password.
