So, you are among the targeted ones! Don’t worry, just play attentively on web – it’s now a statutory requirement for all of them we are quite active on web. In a latest threat, many Twitter users have, reportedly, received an email purporting source as Twitter which is guiding you to enter your personal information on a partner site due to complete system upgrade. But, Beware it’s another filthy act from some miscreants who is trying to gain illegal access over your Twitter account.

Many users have reportedly received an email from admin@twitter.com stating to omit your personal information on one of Twitter’s partner’s website. However, this email is not from Twitter. The email contains an image which has a direct link to a third party website. Once clicked on this image, it will redirect you to a form hosted on a third-party website to grab your personal information like Name, email Id and Zip code.

If you’ve received an email like this, do not give away any of your personal information. Scams like this are trying to both make money off of the surveys you fill in, and steal your information.

Users can easily filter out this email from your other genuine messages. This email contains an embedded image, than text, as well as the fact that Twitter would never ask you to feed your personal information that too on some third-party – so called partner website – website.

There are also few grammatical mistakes and Twitter will never broadcast any message without vetting it through a proper proof reading.

Due to technology advancement, it has become easy for hackers to send an email from any email ID – which is technically be a spam email. However, many times a normal user fell for such setups and ends up losing his valuable email or social media account. We would like to warn all our users to stay alert for such scams and always cross verify about such email form multiple sources before reacting by any ways on such emails or messages.
