Scam???

Just got an email from something id'ed as Social Knowledge . com giving reference to a private message I received on the Jayco forum. Said I raised an issue and they gave me a reference # and a link to contact for further info about my issue. To access the link they wanted me to provide identification info concerning my Jayco Forum membership.

What is this???

Social knowledge is the owner of Jayco Owners Forum and other online forums.
You must have hit a wrong button somewhere.

Not a Scam as far as I know.

Did you possibly hit report post by accident? The little triangle next to the green/grey online indicator?

As an IT security professional, I caution everyone to NEVER click on links in unsolicited emails, even if it appears to come from a legitimate sender. This includes your brother, sister, aunt, uncle, neighbor across the street or your best friend. If you do, you can expect your computer, phone, tablet, or whatever to be compromised.

If you're unsure, call the person who sent the email and ask them if they sent it. And yes, it's inconvenient. But...it's not nearly as inconvenient as having all of your data stolen or held for ransom.

Click on this link for more info.

If you attempted to click on the link text above....you failed.

Sorry...couldn't resist.

We see anywhere from 5-10% of users open unsolicited emails and click on embedded links. Unless you know what you're looking for, there's really no way to distinguish valid emails from malicious emails. The best rule to follow is pretty simple.... If you didn't ask for it, delete it.

Another way to remember it is that if the link in an email you are about to click on might have anything to do with your personal or financial information, DO NOT click it.
But instead open your browser and type the exact web address of where you need to go and verify the address starts with https and a lock is displayed.

Anything is possible I guess. What is this Social Knowledge thing?
