Spectrum email Phishing attempt ! ! !
« on: July 11, 2022, 04:01:30 PM »
I received what I believe to be a Phishing email purporting to be from Spectrum. The title of the email was "Your online Statement is ready." I know what the real online notification looks like. The real notification has my name, last four of my account number, etc.

But this phishing email had none of that. The email they used for their email message to display was "support@spectrum.net" with the name "Spectrum" .... but, as I hovered over the "Spectrum", the real sender's email address appeared. It was "kikistj@charter.net"

The official email that I get from Spectrum, telling me that my Spectrum Statement is ready, comes from this email:
MyAccount@spectrumemails.com

I've included a picture of a phishing email...
