ALERT--ALERT--ALERT


posted on 4th of march, 2009

Another well known microstock site, ........, was hit by an email phishing attack yesterday.

Always beware of emails from any online site that randomly appear, specifically asking you to log into your account. You're all probably well aware of emails like this that appear to be from Paypal and eBay.

DT does not send out emails asking users to log in to their accounts.

There's some danger, that this will occur with other microstock agencies like DT, too.

You can tell a phishing/fake email by looking at the URL you are directed to. If it does not show "dreamstime.com/" as the top level domain name, it's fake.
