ALERT - Phishing Scam
Published on Thursday, July 27, 2017 at 02:36 PM
IMLS has received reports of a phishing scam. Someone pretending to be a potential client sends a message. The agent responds and receives an email that says, "Thank you for your response, here is my clients offer" with an attached PDF titled "Loan Doc.pdf" - they click on the PDF shortcut and it takes them to a phishing site.
If you receive an email like this beware if they try to get you to click on a link or open a document especially if you do not know the person or are not expecting to receive it.
Below is an example of the initial inquiry received. The agent then gets the phishing email after responding.
