Phishing Waveapps Emails ?

UniesUnies Member Posts: 1

Been receiving waveapps emails asking to login to keep using the service even though I've been using it monthly. The links redirects to http://email03.waveapps.io/c/ and my AV blocked it as suspicious site: This web site has been reported as suspicious. We recommend that you do not visit this web site.

    Hi, @Unies.

    Following Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL), Wave only has permission to send automated emails for a certain period if your account is inactive. The whole legislation is a little more complicated than that and has other points, but this is why we send out emails to inactive accounts after a certain time.

    If this is the email I believe it is (you can send me a screenshot of it via private message to confirm), this just means that your account was inactive for a little too long. I did a bit of digging and noticed that there were two accounts using the name of your business. Was that email sent to a different email than the one attached to your main Wave account? It's fairly common that Wave users create a secondary account by accident while trying to log in with the wrong email address.

    Let me know if that clears things up.

    I would like to report abuse.
    I'm concerned because one of my customers received a bogus fishing invoice
    from a different waveapps user. I'm concerned there may be a breach in WaveApps security. I'm not sure it's just a coincidence that the sender of the fishing email got my clients email a different source.
