PHISHING ALERT – DocuSign – Don’t click!

Heads up, everyone – our team has gotten phishing emails like this one posing as messages from DocuSign.

DON’T CLICK unless (a) the message is from someone you know and (b) is a message and document you were expecting.

If you receive too many documents via DocuSign to remember if you were expecting the message/document or not, take these precautions:

·         Hover your mouse over the Download link.

·         Carefully read the url that appears.

·         If the url is not for DocuSign, delete the email immediately.

·         Then ask your IT provider to ensure the web filter, firewall, and anti-virus are all up-to-date.

DocuSign is a legitimate business that provides a valuable service to the business community. This is not their fault – these messages are a hoax.

Contact us today if you would like to have your IT system scanned to identify unaddressed vulnerabilities.
