Hi All,

A colleague father at work got hit with a phishing email. As he is the old Joe soap he never thought twice only to find out that around R22 000 ($3000) had been transferred from his account.

Now I don't know the details however you need an auto generated PIN number which gets sent to your cellphone when you want to do the transfer. However it was done.

Now I suppose the phishers had his cellphone number and did something there but I doubt it.

Anyone in the line of work to protect against this sort of thing , could please comment.
