Phishing Scam

Hello verynice community. Unfortunately, verynice has been targeted as part of a phishing scheme where people are being offered jobs at verynice in exchange for their personal information, such as home address, photo ID, phone number, date of birth, and even bank account information. If you have been contacted by someone pretending to be us, do not provide them with any personal information. Instead, please report the email account through Google.

We have only learned of this scheme today, and have already contacted Indeed and Google to alert them of the issue. We’re terribly sorry to anyone who may have been affected. In case it’s helpful, here is a free resource with some ideas of what to do if you have been victimized.

Please also do the following:

Report phishing emails and texts.

  • Forward phishing emails to spam@uce.gov – and to the organization impersonated in the email. Your report is most effective when you include the full email header, but most email programs hide this information. To ensure the header is included, search the name of your email service with “full email header” into your favorite search engine.

  • File a report with the Federal Trade Commission at FTC.gov/complaint.

  • Visit Identitytheft.gov. Victims of phishing could become victims of identity theft; there are steps you can take to minimize your risk.

  • You can also report phishing email to reportphishing@apwg.org. The Anti-Phishing Working Group – which includes ISPs, security vendors, financial institutions and law enforcement agencies – uses these reports to fight phishing.
