John Hancock Phishing Scam
Posted: February 19, 2015
We have become aware of suspicious emails being sent to John Hancock participants as part of a phishing scam. These emails have the appearance of originating from John Hancock and are aimed at gaining individual’s personal information. The recipient is asked to click on a link, and to complete an online website form with personal information so that we can verify our records.
John Hancock did not send these emails. They have taken steps to have the fake websites disabled and their investigation is ongoing. At no time will John Hancock ever request personal, financial, or password information through unsolicited emails.
If you feel you have received a suspicious email appearing to be from John Hancock, please forward the message to my attention at firstname.lastname@example.org so I may forward the email to our account manager. Please do not open any links or attachments that may be included in the email or provide any personal information in response.
We will update you if we become aware of any further developments. Please contact CUC’s Benefits Administration if you have any questions.
