Fraudulent Emails 05.05.06

Reminder to all users:

There seems to be a new email going around purporting to come from Metrobank and asking people to provide their online credentials in order to join a lottery.

While most of us would like nothing better than to win some cash, emails like these (and others not necessarily lottery-related), do NOT originate from the institutions shown in the sender address or body. Their only purpose is to gather personal information and credentials (known as phishing) which will in turn be used for ILLEGAL purposes.

Please exercise care and common sense when you receive emails like these.

Thank you for your attention.
