In the wake of the Capital One 2019 data breach, evidence of several types of phishing attacks which spoof a Capital One customer service representative have emerged. Be on the look-out for emails which blackmail you with information related to the breached data, or want to help you either secure your information or be compensated for the damages.
Several of these attacks may look similar to this:
Note that Capital One has officially announced that affected consumers will be notified and given instructions on how to be compensated via mail, not email.
If you do receive communication whether through email or another method related to this event, be sure to validate the sender or caller by communicating directly with Capital One through a separate contact means and verifying the legitimacy of the program.
