Nikon has issued a warning about scammers trying to impersonate the brand. The warning stated that YouTube and Facebook users receive an email pretending to be from Nikon’s public relation team. The victims were asked to use Nikon’s product for their content creation and opportunities to avail their sponsorship.
The propelling force behind such scams is a fraudulent domain name. Scammers create multiple email addresses from a single domain name and lure their victims. While registering their domain names they make sure that the domain name is confusingly similar to some renowned brand. They would use the brand name with addition of one or two alphabets or register a name with a wrong spelling of the brand name. This confuses the victim as they mistake it for the original domain name and company.
Before you visit any new website or click on an email, check for these signs. By following this protocol you can keep yourself and your company safe from such scams.
