Watch out for phishing email from ‘Marktplaats’

1 June 2018

Scammers are sending out fake emails purporting to come from the leading Dutch online trading site Marktplaats. They are trying to get hold of the user credentials of visitors to this website.

The subject line reads: “Confirmation of your email change Marktplaats.nl’ [‘Bevestiging van uw e-mail wijziging Marktplaats.nl’]. Recipients are told that their email account has been changed. If they didn’t do this, they are to click on a link. Unfortunately, this link directs to a counterfeit copy of Marktplaats.nl.

Here’s an example of this email (click to enlarge):


Our advice
Don’t respond to this message. Markplaats.nl has nothing to do with is.
