Identifying and Reporting a Phishing Site

A phishing site is a malicious website which impersonates a legitimate one in order to trick visitors into giving up sensitive information such as passwords, account details or credit card information.



The best way to recognize a phishing site is to check the domain name in the address line and compare it to the original site's domain name to verify its legitimacy. Phishing sites will often use a very similar domain name which visitors can easily overlook. For example, your domain name might be mytypedreamsite.com, but the phishing site might have the domain name mytypedreeam.com. These domain names look similar, but are spelled slightly differently in order to trick you.



Because Typedream is a trustworthy and well-known service, attackers may attempt to impersonate Typedream with fake emails and websites in order to target and deceive.

Important: Legitimate Typedream emails always end with typedream.com.



To help identify a phishing attempt, check for the following:

Emails send from addresses that might appear official, such as typdream.com or tipedream.com.

  • Emails that request your personal information.

  • Emails with links to download or view files from an unfamiliar source.

  • Emails directing you to an unofficial website.

  • Emails that contain grammar or spelling errors.

  • Emails that unnecessarily reference the full names of individuals from the organization they are attempting to imitate.



If you think that you have been the target of a phishing attack, let us know immediately by filling out this form or by contacting [email protected]. The suspicious site will be removed.
