Zoom scams making the rounds

Two new Zoom scams are making the rounds online, targeting homeworkers, according to the Chartered Trading Standards Institute, a professional association representing professionals working in the UK.

In one scam, the victim receives a fake email from the sender “Zoom Mail”. The message states that the individual has received a “Zoom voicemail”, and directs them to call a premium rate number to listen to the recording.

According to the CTSI, calling the number costs approximately $7.50, plus standard network rates.

The second scam sees the victim invited into a bogus Zoom conference call. The message links to a fake login page through which scammers scrape victims’ login credentials.
