Identifying False Emails
You might receive emails from EightElms, such as Order Confirmation, Shipping Confirmation emails or Technical Notification emails. However, sometimes you may receive emails that are not really from EightElms, even if at first glance they may appear to be. Instead, such emails are falsified and attempt to convince you to reveal sensitive account information.
These false emails, also called "spoofed" emails or "phishing," look similar to legitimate emails from EightElms. Often these emails direct you to a false website that looks similar to an EightElms website, where you might be asked to give account information, such as your email address and password combination.
Unfortunately, these false websites can steal your sensitive information, which can then be used without your knowledge to commit fraud.
To protect yourself from responding to these emails, you can follow some simple rules:
Know what EightElms won't ask in email: EightElms will not ask you for the following information in an email communication:
- Your bank account information, credit card number, PIN number, or credit card security code (including "updates" to any of the above)
- Your mother's maiden name or other information to identify you, such as your birth city or your favorite pet's name
- Review the email for grammatical or typographical errors: Watch for poor grammar or typographical errors. Many phishing emails are translated from other languages or are sent without being proof-read.
Check the return address: Genuine emails from shopeightelms.com always will come from an address ending in "@shopeightelms.com." Check the email's header information. If the "received from," "reply to," or "return path" for the email does not come from "@shopeightelms.com," it is not from EightElms. Most email programs let you examine the source of the email. The method you use to check the header information varies depending upon the email program you use. The following are some examples of fraudulent return addresses:
