Obviously we didn't make the reservation, so the natural response is...
Well... we didn't click the email. But that's cos we always try to be careful when clicking emails.
The natural response for most people would be to click the link to cancel the reservation or to find out more about it.
And it's pretty obvious that it's trying some phishing attack...
The email was from email@example.com
Whereas the usual reservation from Chope is @chope.com
Then I also had a friend who recently received another email from a restaurant chain, saying "Unfortunately, we weren't able to reset the password for XXX email account".
And once again, it's to induce people to click the link. Cos usually people will click links when it's not something they themselves triggered...
So it seems like recently, these phishing attacks are using some basic non important emails to try to trick people.
I mean previously, they used bank emails and try to phish info making people concerned that something wrong happened with their bank.
Or maybe it's their delivery of a parcel by the post office.
And now... seems like they are using some innocent emails like restaurant reservation or some random membership account to induce folks to click the link to see what's happening...
Well... DON'T CLICK...
Just thought I'd share.
