Email Account Hack With Mobile Phone

 

How Scammers Hack Into Your Email Account

(with video below) This email hack is one of the most clever scams in order to get access to your inbox. Cyber criminals can now easily access your email account just by knowing your email address and your mobile phone number – no password required! Many email providers –such as Google or Hotmail– offer you the ability to register your mobile phone number to receive an SMS recovery code, in case you forgot your password. That’s what makes criminals’ job easy. How does the scam work?

Watch the video below to see how your email account is easily stolen away from you:

If a criminal knows your email address and your mobile phone number all he needs to do is to begin the password recovery process, just like you would do if you had forgotten your password. As there are a couple of options available for recovering passwords (via secondary email, or text message) the scammer selects the second one. He asks the verification code to be sent to the mobile phone registered with the account-yours.

As expected, the code goes straight to your phone (victim’s phone). Seconds later, the scammer sends the victim another text, but this time from his phone, claiming to be the email provider again.

He informs the victim that there’s been some suspicious activity on the account and asks him to reply with the verification code. Needless to say, when the victim sends back the code, the criminal accesses the email account right away and changes the password. From there, it’s all history.

 

How Scammers Hack Into Your Email Account: How To Avoid

Let this sink in for a bit: all the messages from password recovery services only provide you with the verification code and never require that you reply. That is pretty much it! Ignore the unsolicited text messages asking for verification codes. Share below in the Comments section any of the suspicious numbers that you might have received text messages from.
