Phishing, MRO-style


If you're on the Internet (and if you're reading this, you probably are), you've been hit with phishing attacks--bogus emails or web links that try to get you to part with key personal information, usually to pay a bank debt or verify that your account is in good standing. 

Well, EASA reports that scammers are preying on the compliance-minded certificate-holder world, sending fake emails purportedly from EASA demanding payments of fees or copies of invoices with compromising information.

EASA has a web page outing the scam, explaining exactly how its customers pay fees--in short, only to one bank account--and telling targets of the scammers what to do if a bogus email comes in.
