Today we received reports from Avangate partners about deceiving emails they have received, in a phishing attempt to capture login information to access Avangate vendors and affiliate accounts.
These emails look like the one on the left and are not legitimate in any way, even if the Avangate logo and name are present in the email.
Please note that Avangate does not send automatic HTML emails with invites to login to update your account. Your billing information cannot be changed from the Avangate Control Panel as a security measure, everything is done through Avangate Accounting Department or your Account Manager.
If you receive such emails, please do not click on the link. If you think you have been a victim of phishing, please call (650) 963 – 5701 (US and Canada) or +31 88 0000008 (International), contact your account manager or use the feedback form in the Avangate Control Panel.
