Unauthorized use of the Globex Business Names and Logo
Globex has been alerted to the unauthorized use of its business names and logos by persons or companies fraudulently representing themselves as Globex or as business partners of Globex.
Fraudulent email messages often use corporate logos, colours, and legal disclaimers to make it appear as though they are real, in an attempt to trick people into providing personal information such as usernames, passwords, credit card details, etc., for the purpose of committing theft, identity theft and/or other crimes.
Recognizing unauthorized emails is key to protecting yourself against such theft and other crimes. Indicators that an email might be fraudulent include:
- Unexpected requests for personal and/or financial information.
- Alarming messages and requests for immediate action, such as “Your account will be suspended within 24 hours if you don’t respond” or claims that you’ve won the lottery or a prize.
- Spelling and grammatical errors and excessive use of exclamation points (!).
If you suspect that you have received a fraudulent email claiming to be from Globex, please forward it to email@example.com and then delete the email immediately.
