PokerStars Player Accounts At Risk Due To Phishing Scam




PokerStars was the target of a fairly unsophisticated but realistic-looking attempt to snare unwary players.

It?s been the bane of the internet since e-mail first appeared on the scene, and poker isn?t immune from the phishing scams which regularly do the rounds, PokerStars the target this week of a fairly unsophisticated but realistic-looking attempt to snare unwary players.The ?password reset? e-mail is a very popular way for scammers to access account information, and the ?StarsAccount? version which appeared this week is a generic-looking message from ?support? at the world?s biggest poker site.
This latest phishing attempt is slightly unusual in that there are no obvious errors in spelling or syntax, the message short and to the point:
"Hello, Following your request to reset your password we have located the account(s) listed below. Please click the appropriate link (Stars ID) below to start the password reset process?"
Naturally, once the link is clicked, the player is taken to a fake site and the log-in details for the players account are then at the mercy of the scammer ? and from past experience tens of thousands of dollars have instantly disappeared from unsuspecting players accounts.
PokerStars own ?Help? pages explain what should happen and what to do if you are unsure about such an attempt to obtain your details.
"PokerStars will never ask you for your password in an email. The only place where your PokerStars password will be requested is in the ...
