BookWhirl.com, a book-marketing site, has issued a warning on recent phishing attacks that have hit self-published authors.
According to the BookWhirl management, this scam includes fraudsters sending emails that appear to be from an official BookWhirl.com email. These emails embody fake names and contact information that only uses the BookWhirl.com's name to extract personal information for monetary gain.
Recipients of these fraudulent emails have been advised to verify the email address and contact information of all emails received, even if the email appears to be from an official or familiar source.
The BookWhirl management has emphasized that only email addresses with the domain name of “bookwhirl.com“ and the contact details stated on its website are considered authentic.
