Cash App is a handy mobile payment service that allows you to quickly transfer money back and forth from your mobile device.
However, as with any popular app, there are scammers out there taking advantage of Cash App’s good reputation to commit fraud. One way they do this is through Cash App email scams, or sending a fake Cash App email to try and trick you into providing sensitive information or transferring funds.
Cash App email scams involve emails from Cash App that aren’t really from the company. In reality, they are emails sent by scammers and made to look legit to trick you into trusting them.
Email scams are nothing new, and Cash App email scams are just the latest way scammers try to steal information from you by pretending to be emailing you from a company you know and trust. Wherever there is a large user base, for an app or service, there will be scammers trying to take advantage of unsuspecting users.
Cash App phishing emails are fake Cash App emails that are intended to get you to give up sensitive information, such as your Cash App login info or other personal details. They might claim that there is a problem with your account and that you need to email them your username and password to fix it, or they might try to get your credit card and bank account info.
Spoofing emails are similar to phishing emails, except they try to get you to click a link and go to a fake Cash App site. If you click on the link, it might install malware on your device or it might take you to a site that asks you for sensitive information.
Scammers cannot send emails from an official Cash App email, so always check this first if you get an email claiming to be from Cash App. The sender’s address may be a strange combination of numbers and letters, or it might be some form of “Cash App” misspelled or with additional numbers and letters.
Real company emails typically greet you by your name or username. Fake Cash App emails will often use a strange generic greeting, such as “Dear Customer.”
Cash App phishing emails try to trick you into acting without thinking by creating a sense of urgency. They might claim there is an emergency with your account and say that it has been locked and that you must act immediately to unlock it, for example.
Emails pressuring you into clicking on links or attachments are sketchy, period. Legitimate company emails will not ask you to visit links or download attachments for any kind of official business.
Scammers are often located in countries where English is not the first language, so spelling and grammar mistakes are usually present in fake Cash App emails.
Never click any links or attachments in emails claiming that you need to visit them to provide login information or other sensitive data.
Read any email claiming to be from Cash App thoroughly and keep an eye out for errors, which are huge red flags.
If there are any links in an email claiming to be from Cash App, they are most likely fraudulent. You can preview them by hovering your mouse’s pointer over them to see where the link really takes you.
Whenever you receive a fake Cash App email, block the sender’s address and mark it as spam. This will prevent the scammers from sending you any more emails from that address and help your email client filter out future Cash App phishing emails from your inbox to your spam folder.
