Hello, I would like to inform you that from the email address adobehelp.care@outlook.com
phishing has arrived. We had almost agreed to send the payment when I noticed that he was using @outlook.com instead of @Deleted User.

...

I don't know how to report such a phishing attempt here...

@Ondřej Mareš 

Instead of forwarding the scam email to phishing@adobe.com, send the email as an attachment in a new email. It will include more information for Adobe to examine.

Hi,

 

besides the written Infos about where to send the Phishing Info I read that you already have a good eye for such Phishing Mails. Just a small Tipp: in most Mail Clients you can put those E-Mail address on a black list that they go to the Spam-Folder so that you not got bothered and only look lets say once a month into that Folder to confirm all is Ok. Hope that helps.

 

regards,
Henrik

It's not an either/or @Henrik Heigl . You can set up rules to send phishing emails to your spam folder on your own computer. In addition, phishing emails should be sent to the company the "phisher" is pretending to be so they can do something at their end.

 

This is from the Federal Trade Commission:

https://consumer.ftc.gov/articles/how-recognize-and-avoid-phishing-scams

"If you got a phishing email or text message, report it. The information you give helps fight scammers."

Other links say the same thing. Most company websites have this info.
