Reporting fraudulent emails, viruses, or phishing scams

How do I report fraudulent emails, viruses, or phishing scams?

You can report these types of issues to our Abuse Department at abuse@acsalaska.net. If you are forwarding an example email, please make sure to include the full message headers.

Identity Theft Reporting

What is identity theft?

Identity theft is a crime where a criminal acquires and uses the victims' personal information, such as Social Security or driver's license numbers, to take out loans, obtain new credit cards, rent an apartment, buy a car, incur debt, file for bankruptcy, as well as other criminal activities. Identity theft can not only damage someone's creditworthiness, it can also create unknown criminal records that can result in the identity theft victim being wrongly arrested or denied employment after a routine background check.

What is phishing?

Phishing is the term that is used to describe an email scam that identity thieves use to trick people into giving out their personal information such as credit card or Social Security Numbers. These emails appear to be from well known, legitimate organizations and tell recipients that they need to "respond immediately" regarding an issue with their account or that they have won a prize. The emails often contain a link which redirects you to completely phony site which looks legitimate, complete with the company logo, that asks you to enter or update your personal information such as passwords, Social Security number, bank account, or credit card numbers which they then steal.

What are signs that an email may be a phishing scam?

While the emails may look genuine with sophisticated graphics and logos, legitimate emails from a financial institution will never ask you to enter or reply with personal information such as your Social Security Number or credit card number. Be wary of emails that:

  • Ask you to enter any personal information such as your bank account number, an account password, credit card number, PIN, mother's maiden name, or Social Security Number.
  • Fail to address you by your name.
  • Fail to confirm the company does business with you, such as referencing a partial account number.
  • Warn that your account will be shut down unless you reconfirm your financial information - scare tactics are often used to get the recipient to act on the request.
  • Warn that you have been the victim of fraud.
  • Have spelling or grammatical errors.
  • Ask you to send payment information via email.

Please remember - We will never solicit personal information by email.

What should I do if I think I have received a bogus phishing e-mail?

If you receive an email that you think may be a phishing scam, you should report the e-mail by forwarding it to the following addresses: spam@uce.gov and the Anti-Phishing Working Group at reportphishing@antiphishing.org. The Anti-Phishing Working Group is a collective organization created to combat phishing fraud, consisting of 680 member companies made up of eight of the top 10 U.S. financial institutions and four of the top five Internet service providers.

In addition to notifying the above mentioned agencies, the companies that are being fraudulently spoofed also take these phishing attacks very seriously. If you suspect the e-mail is bogus, go directly to the legitimate company site (not by clicking on a link in the e-mail; search the Internet for the company name if you do not already have the address) and visit their security center which often will provide information about these e-mail scams and how to report the event.
