The attention of South Africans have been drawn to a recent email making rounds in the country. According to the SA Independent Electoral Commission, “the emails are being distributed by the ‘Independent Elections Council’ under the email address elections@IEC.co.za and have ‘Electronic Voting Testing Phase’ in the subject field.” Speaking further, the SA Independent Electoral Commission says the fraudlents designed the whole process in a way that, unsuspecting users are automatically lodged in a site that has similar features with the Independent Electoral Commission of SA, once they click a link attached to the email.
And once the link gets open, the fraudent IEC web address then request users to input their login details like their names and other sensitive and personal information. Once this is done, the fraudsters automatically swindle unsuspecting users.
South Africans are therefore warned to overlook any email distributed by elections@IEC.co.za by refraining from clicking or opening an hyperlinks attached to it, as they would end up getting swindled.
