Phishing attempts

Back to help | Category: Nuffic how to | Print

In the past we had problems with a member sending phishing emails to many differents members. This can be done in such circumstances:


1. Block that person

2. Check whether there is a similar name in the database

3. Check the outbox to see whether more messages have been send with similar content

4. When it is seriouss, post a news article or send an emailing campaign to inform members about the incident. 


The current settings are that a person cannot send more than 100 emails per day. However as a member you can still send a message to members who are not in your contact list. AF is working on this issue.
