Undelivered Email Scam: How It Works

Beware of a new-old email scam that is going around this week: the Undelivered Email. How does it work? Your inbox shows you a list of undeliverable emails that you’ve apparently received. Here is how the scam works, so you can avoid it.

Recipients are prompted to decide what they wish to do with each mail from the list, but the corresponding links lead to a fake login form, see below. The scam uses the subject line of “Notifications – Undelivered emails to your inbox” and pretends to be a list of the email being held on the server for you.

This phishing message then asks you to choose whether you want to delete all of the emails, deny them, allow them to be delivered, or to whitelist them for the future – very tricky, as many people fall for the scam.

The thing is, regardless of the link you click on, a fake “Outlook Web App” landing page opens up and prompts you to enter your login credentials. Once you do that, the scammer has access to them immediately.
