ebolaEvery major world crisis represents a new opportunity for fraudsters to take advantage of our good faith and the Ebola virus is no different. Different advisories have been issued cautioning banks and other organizations to reemphasize their customers the necessary skepticism with opening, clicking, or answering Ebola-based notifications.

These scams are social media, e-mail, and charity-based. It is imperative that people interested in making donations or participating in Ebola aid efforts, do so only through known organizations directly on their sites instead of clicking on an email, link on social media or text message, especially if it arrived unsolicited.

If you come across a scam, be sure to report it to reportphishing@easysol.net.
