LIME warns of email scam

LIME is alerting its customers of a phishing email that is circulating.

The email carries an old LIME brand and comes from [email protected]

“LIME will never ask you to perform security related changes to your account or send emails to collect user names, passwords, email addresses or other personal information,” said Julie Hutton, head of marketing at LIME Cayman Islands.

“If you receive an email claiming to be from LIME that asks for account information, it should be considered fraudulent and an attempt to obtain personal information that may be used to commit fraud. LIME recommends, do not click on any of the links and delete it. If you have clicked on a link in the email, change your passwords immediately,” Ms. Hutton advised.

A phishing email is the practice of sending phony email messages disguised as legitimate and often include company logos that look real.

A typical phishing email will include a false claim about a customer’s account and either a link or button that takes them to a “spoof” website that mimics a reputable company’s actual website in the hopes that people will disclose personal information such as a credit card number.
