Your meeting attendees are waiting!
Updated: Jun 6
I saw this title in an email, and my heart dropped...
Zoom has quickly become a primary method for communicating. I just got an email saying, "Your meeting attendees are waiting!", something I've seen several times before recently.
I got worried and nearly clicked. It had the name of my participant in the message body, and I recently spoke with this person. We scheduled a Zoom call for Friday. Or wait, was it today?! I left him waiting... oh no, how could I. I'm so lame. Then I double-checked my calendar, and our meeting is tomorrow.
It nearly got me, I almost clicked and fell for it. It's a Zoom phishing scam. I hovered and saw the link went to some other website, not Zoom.
It's like shooting phish in a barrel...
With so many dramatic and high profile issues going on, now is the time to remain on high alert. Remember these 3 keys to prevent getting phished.
