If you receive an email that looks like it’s from Phoenix TS, but asks you for your password or social security number, it’s a fraudulent email, or “phish.” We recommend that you do the following:
Forward the email to the US Federal Trade Commission at email@example.com or call 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) to report it. The FTC uses the spam stored in this database to pursue law enforcement actions against people who send deceptive email. Delete the email.
If you believe “phishers” have gotten access to your personal or financial information, we recommend that you also do the following:
Change your password. Contact credit reporting services (such as Experian, Callcredit and Equifax) and have a fraud alert attached to your credit report file. Please be aware that the perpetrator may attempt to use your information to establish accounts or obtain credit at other businesses in their name.
