Possible phishing? Fake Audiogon website?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I received an email that looks very much like it was from Audiogon.  It says:

 

New Message from AudiogoN Customer
From: joeabrams    11/17/2013
joeabrams started a conversation with you.
To see the message click here.

 

(See screenshot of the email below). 

 

When I clicked on the link it goes to a page that looks like Audiogon's page, but web address is "http://app-audiogon.co.uk/signin" and it asked me to log in.  I did not type in my user and password of course.

I just got the same thing at 9:59 PST.   It seems to be grabbing your credentials and then directing you to the real web site, where you will not find a message from joeabrams.   You can type anything into the login page and it will take you to the real site without complaint.   Pretty good fake I have to say.  Not really sure why they would want to target audiogon.

I got the same message. The interesting thing is that it was sent to my email address used only for Audiogon that I set up quite recently (within a month or so). I suspect that Audiogon customer database has been hacked.

 

The server address is somewhat different: http://audiogon-a.co.uk/signin
