Identifying False (Spoof or Phishing) E-mails
A "phishing" or "spoof" e-mail looks similar to a real e-mail from Gifts From The Gods. It may direct you to a false website that looks similar to Gifts From The Gods which asks you to enter your account information and password. Your account information may then be used to commit fraud.
Follow a few simple rules to help protect yourself from phishing and spoofing e-mails:
- Know what Gifts From The Gods won't ask for
Gifts-Stop will never, for any reason ask you to send us the following information in an e-mail:
- Your national insurance number
- Your bank account information, credit card number, PIN number or credit card security code
- Your mother's maiden name or other information that could be used to identify you (such as your birth city or your favourite pet's name)
- Your Gifts From The Gods password
You should only enter personal information on our website.
- Look for spelling and grammar errors Many phishing e-mails are translated from other languages and are not proofread. Remember though, good grammar can simply mean a clever spammer; a well written e-mail doesn't necessarily originate from a reliable source.
- Check the return address Genuine Gifts From The Gods e-mails come from an e-mail address ending in "@gmail.com or @ giftsfromthegods.co.uk or @giftsfromthegods.com".
Fraudulent e-mails do their best to look like they originated from Gifts From The Gods, for example, by putting " Gifts From The Gods" at the beginning of the address, such as " firstname.lastname@example.org" or email@example.com,. If the return address contains the name of another Internet Service Provider (ISP), you can be sure the e-mail is fraudulent.
However, the return address can be forged. Always evaluate an e-mail using all the tips on this page, especially know what Gifts From The Gods won't ask for.
- Check the website address
Some phishers set up spoofed websites that contain the word "Gifts From The Gods" or “cc-inc” somewhere in the URL. Genuine Gifts From The Gods or CC-inc URLs always begin withhttp://www.giftsfromthegods.com, https://www. giftsfromthegods.co.uk or http:// www.cc-inc.co.uk.
We never use a combination such as "security- giftsfromthegods.co.uk" or "giftsfromthegods.com.biz".
Some phishing e-mails include website addresses that look as though they take you to Your Account, but really take you to a completely different website. If you hover over the link you often can see the underlying URL, either as a pop-up or as information in the browser status bar.
The best way to ensure that you don't respond to a phishing e-mail is to go directly to Your Account to review or change anything about your account after entering your password.
Use Your Seller Account to track your orders
You should view the e-mails we send you when you make a sale as helpful reminders. The most reliable way to track your orders is via Your Account.
Be wary of any offer to unsubscribe you from a service. Many spammers use this to create a list of valid e-mail addresses.
If you'd like to unsubscribe from any Gifts From The Gods mailings, update your communications preferences in Your Account.
