We wanted to give our Newton community a friendly reminder to be vigilant against scams targeting our users through impersonation tactics. Fraudsters have been attempting to deceive users by sending emails claiming to be from Newton, but upon closer investigation, these emails do not originate from our official channels. We take your security seriously, and we want to ensure that you are equipped with the knowledge to safeguard yourself against such scams. In this blog post, we'll shed light on the issue and provide you with essential tips to stay protected.
Impersonation scams involve fraudsters posing as representatives of a legitimate company, in this case, Newton. These scammers often use fake email addresses that resemble our official communications but have slight variations or unfamiliar domains.
For example, we recently encountered a scam where the URL was "Newutonb2c(dot)com" claiming to be an entity of Newton Pro. This is a classic example of how scammers use the internet to deceive unsuspecting individuals. We’ve seen attempts from cybercriminals specifically attempting to leverage the “Newton Pro” moniker to phish users.
It is crucial to be vigilant and pay attention to such details to protect yourself from falling victim to these scams. Always remember that prevention is better than cure, and staying informed is key to staying safe.
As scams related to impersonation continue to rise, the Newton community must stay informed and alert. By following the tips mentioned above, you can enhance your security and protect yourself from falling victim to these fraudulent schemes. Remember, Newton will always prioritize your safety and work diligently to ensure a secure trading experience. Stay cautious, report any suspicious activity, and together, we can create a safer environment for all Newton users.
