Open Notice: Dell phishing scam advisory (Jul 19)
Dell’s Security team was recently alerted of a phishing scam targeting State and Local Government customers.
The scam uses free email services (Gmail.com, Yahoo.com, GMX.com, etc.) to impersonate Dell team members and asks customers to route their monthly Dell invoice payments to new bank accounts. If you comply with the request, all payments intended for Dell are actually routed to the criminal’s bank account. While the body of the message might be signed with the information of a legitimate Dell team member, the email is not sent from a Dell.com address.
Dell will never contact you outside of a corporate Dell.com email address. Dell is not aware of any breach of their systems, and they are actively investigating this scam. If you receive one of these emails, have questions, or if you have already been victimized, please contact Dell's Security team immediately at Security@Dell.com.
