Many people have reported being hit by a scam email this morning, that appears to be from StubHub (it isn’t) and says it is charging your credit card a huge sum to pay for boxing tickets to a match in Nevada.
StubHub says this scam has been hitting them since 7 a.m. this morning. Anyone who has had a StubHub account (and even some who haven’t) may be at risk.
According to StubHub, these are the precautions you should take:
• If you receive the scam email, DON’T login. It may steal your passwords and then give thieves access to your StubHub account where valid credit card info may be stored.
• Change your password if you have an account at StubHub – right away. Go directly to the StubHub site to do that, not through an email.
• Send a copy of the scam email you receive to firstname.lastname@example.org so they can investigate.
This is what the email looks like:
