Guidance for Identifying Illegitimate Electronic Signatures

Identifying Deceptive Electronic Signature Requests

Be diligent when handling electronic signature requests. Phony requests can bypass spam filters and appear legitimate. Check the sender’s email address carefully to confirm its authenticity. Be skeptical of any document that prompts you for personal information, as this is a common tactic fraudsters use.

Steps to Take if You Suspect Fraud

If you encounter a suspicious document, do not provide any personal information. Instead, immediately halt the process and report the incident to your IT service team for further investigation. Their expertise can help determine the request’s legitimacy and ensure your safety.

Strategies to Shield Yourself from Phishing Attempts

Protecting yourself against deceptive activities calls for proactive measures:

  • Keep your network security updated to fend off malicious attacks.
  • Educate yourself on the hallmarks of fraudulent communications.
  • Always verify the source before interacting with any document that requests your signature.
