A phising scam through print media has been detected in Canada, the CBC reports. A fake Canada Post job ad has appeared at least in the Vancouver Sun, the Calgary Sun, the Halifax Daily News and the Kamloops Daily News. Applicants calling for the job have been faxed a fake application form. Canada Post spokesperson Lillian Au:
“Unsuspecting individuals are asked to complete the form and provide personal banking information,” Au told CBC News on Tuesday.
My humble opinion is that this one is far too obvious. Since when have postal officials anywhere in the World shown any interest in evaluating their customer service?
