Ongoing phishing campaign
There is currently a phishing campaign where many are recieving e-mails where the person says they are someone else than they are. Therefore be extra vigilant regarding the e-mails you receive. An example of how to recognise these e-mails are that the sender name and e-mailaddress does not match.
An example of such an e-mail can look like this:
From: Name Surname <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Sent: den 29 januari 2020 15:45
Header: Are you available?
I need a favor kindly email me back as soon as possible
