confused.com about phishing
The rules on phising prevention are quiet clear
" The Internet Crime Complaint Center, a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National White Collar Crime Center, also offers these guidelines:
Be suspicious of any unsolicited email requesting personal information.
Avoid filling out forms in email messages that ask for personal information.
Always compare the link in the email to the link that you are actually directed to.
Log on to the official Web site, instead of "linking" to it from an unsolicited email.
Contact the actual business that supposedly sent the email to verify if the email is genuine. "
So you would think that the insurance companies sending out email renewals requests would have that in mind. Obviously not with www.confused.com. And yes it is a genuine renewal request.
