Just got this email this afternoon. I never used the product mentioned, but have been an IObit customer and member of this forum for many years. It appears that another company, has gotten hold of not only the email addresses of IObit customers, but the actual user names connected to those email accounts. Be wary people. IObit comment would be appreciated [TABLE=class: yiv6691166188mob_full_width, align: center, border: 0, cellpadding: 0, cellspacing: 0]

Hi atailor1 & enoskype,

 

Currently, a few users have contacted us about this fake email. We make it clear to our users that it is a scam and don't visit any website to do any operation.

 

Also, we will pay high attention to this issue and take appreciate actions when necessary.

 

Thanks.

The email copied above mentions nothing to do with Iobit or Advance System Care. Notice the difference in the name of the application. ALWAYS pay attention to the wording of emails and hyperlinks contained within. This is how scammers get people. They use known application titles and modify them slightly in order to see how many people they can trick.

Advanced Computer System Repair is very different than Advance System Care.

 

Do you use the same username anywhere other than Iobit's forums and products? If this were connected to a data breach at Iobit, I'm sure that many more of Iobit's users would have received the same phishing attempt email. Why people want to automatically blame or assume Iobit has anything to do with it is pretty presumptuous. I'm not trying to sound condescending, but pay attention to the wording of emails you receive. Check the headers to determine if emails actually came from where you think they did. There are ALWAYS telltale signs of fake emails if you look for them. It's much better to look than to falsely accuse someone else.
