According to a report on About.com, 'Spoofing' and 'Phishing' and Stealing Identities by Robert Longley, http://usgovinfo.about.com/cs/consumer/en/enspoofing.html, The FBI’s Internet Complaint Center (IFCC) has seen a steady increase in complaints that involve some form of unsolicited emails directing consumers to phony “Customer Service” type of websites.
In an FBI press release, the report quotes the Assistant Director of the FBI Cyber Division, Jana Monroe, saying, “Bogus emails that try to trick customers into giving out personal information are on the rise.”
She adds that the scam is contributing to a rise in identity theft, credit card fraud and other internet frauds. ProXPN is urging all companies and individuals worldwide, to go the extra mile in protecting their online presence as it's always better safe than sorry.
This is one of the main reasons that internet users should apply Virtual Private Networks (VPN) like ProXPN VPN to their online activities as VPN’s like ProXPN encrypt all data transferred online, masking users public internet protocol (IP) addresses and blocking hackers or any other intruders from observing user online activities which in-turn ensures that the user’s information cannot be intercepted or accessed, especially crucial data such as credit card numbers and passwords.
Founded in 2009, proXPN is a leading VPN provider. Unlike other services, they offer free accounts. Unlike the SaaS standard practice of time-based free trials, a proXPN free VPN account lasts for life and is limited only by connection speed. proXPN Premium account users enjoy unlimited connection speeds as well as advanced features such as PPTP compatibility for mobile devices and VPN Guard™, proXPN’s method of cutting all data transfer should the VPN connection fail, ensuring all data is encrypted during transmission even if there’s a system error. proXPN’s firm stance on the importance of individual privacy and security online mirrors public sentiment expressed during debates over SOPA and PIPA.
