Traits and Techniques to Spot Fraudulent Emails

台電近日公布,大量偽冒台電名義的詐騙郵件流竄在市面上,詐騙者利用偽造的電費帳單進行犯罪活動。這些所謂的電費帳單郵件有幾個明顯的特徵,供民眾辨識。首先,該類信件標題會將電號遮蔽;其次,信件內容無法提供用電地,這與正規的電費帳單所提供的詳細資訊不符;最後,附件為ZIP壓縮檔案(含有有害的程式檔案),請勿下載點擊!公眾在接收到此類郵件時,需要提高警覺,避免成為詐騙的受害者。

詐騙行為的手段與防範策略

台電進一步提醒公眾,這類詐騙郵件的手法通常會要求收件者輸入密碼,並將有害的程式檔案偽裝成帳單檔案。一旦民眾下載並安裝了這些檔案,可能會導致電腦被駭客攻擊,甚至個人資料外洩。為防止被詐騙,公眾在接收到可疑的郵件、電話或簡訊時,應立即向『165反詐騙專線』或『客服專線1911』求證,確認其真偽,以免陷入騙局。
