As the Easter holiday approaches, the Department of Homeland Security reminds users to stay alert and be aware of Easter holiday scams and cyber campaigns, which may include:

  • Unsolicited shipping notifications that may actually be scams by attackers to solicit personal information (phishing scams),
  • Electronic greeting cards that may contain malicious software (malware),
  • Requests for charitable contributions that may be phishing scams or solicitations from sources that are not real charities, and
  • False advertisements for holiday accommodations or timeshares.
