Be aware that there is an ongoing rise in phishing attempts targeting our clients and employees. Cybercriminals are sending false “spoofed” emails made to look as if these emails were sent from Saftronics, but are in fact fraudulent emails used to obtain personal information. We’ve created this section of the website where we will post updates of any scams we are aware of. Similarly, we would like you to tell us about any emails you think are scams or phishing claiming to be from Saftronics.

What is Phishing?

Phishing is a malicious attempt to obtain sensitive information, such as usernames, passwords, and financial details, by disguising as a trustworthy entity in electronic communication. Scammers use deceptive emails, messages, or websites to trick individuals into revealing confidential information.

Common Tactics
  • Email Spoofing – Be wary of unexpected emails, especially those requesting urgent action or personal information. Verify the sender’s address and check for subtle misspellings or variations. Official communication from Saftronics will always come from a legitimate domain.
  • Fake Websites – Scammers often create fake websites that resemble legitimate ones. Before entering any sensitive information, double-check the website’s URL and ensure it’s secure (https://).
Protect Yourself
  • Think Before You Click – Avoid clicking on links or downloading attachments from unfamiliar or unexpected sources. Hover over links before clicking. If the URL seems unusual or redirects you to an unfamiliar site, avoid it.
  • Verify Contacts – Confirm the legitimacy of emails, messages, or calls by directly contacting Saftronics using trusted contact information, not information provided in the suspicious communication.
  • Educate Yourself – Stay informed about the latest phishing tactics. Knowledge is your best defense.
