Email Spoofed Phishing Attack

Phishing Attack



Forging emails using what looks to be a legitimate email address from a trusted source is becoming more and more common. It's called email spoofing and it can make spotting a scam more difficult.


We are aware of a new phishing scam that is impersonating helpdesks@nemontel.net asking for your username and password (see actual email below). Please do not reply with your username and password information. The attacker hopes to deceive you into thinking this email originated from Nemont. 

This message was sent automatically by a program on Webmail which periodically checks the size of inboxes, where new messages are received. The program is run weekly to ensure no one's inbox grows too large. If your inbox becomes too large, you will be unable to receive new email. Just before this message was sent, you had 18 Megabytes (MB) or more of messages stored in your inbox on your Webmail To help us re-set your SPACE on our database prior to maintain your INBOX, you must reply to this e-mail and enter your:

Username {...........}

and Password  {..............}

You will continue to receive this warning message periodically, If your inbox size grows to 20 MB, then a program on Bates Webmail will move your oldest email to a folder in your home directory to ensure that you will continue to be able to receive in coming email. You will be notified by email that this has taken place. If your inbox grows to 25 MB, you will be unable to receive new email as it will be returned to the sender. After you read a message, it is best to REPLY and SAVE a copy.

Thank you for your cooperation

We are not asking for your username and password. In a previous letter, we asked you to update your account's password if your password didn't fit the security measures for being a strong enough password. However, Nemont would never ask you to send your password through email or by any other means.

REMEMBER! Your username and password is for your use alone and you MUST keep it secret.

If you think you have responded to a phishing email, please contact Nemont IMMEDIATELY at (800) 636-6680!

The only person that should know your password is YOU!
