What is a “phishing scam”?
You may have recently received fraudulent correspondence disguised as an official communication from Newegg. This kind of fake communication is part of a phishing scam, which is designed to “fish” for information by luring unsuspecting recipients into divulging or verifying personal details, like bank accounts, addresses, names and more. Phishing scam artists can send fraudulent communication to millions of people at a time. If you have received phishing communication from someone pretending to be Newegg, this does not mean that Newegg's data security has been breached. Newegg protects your information with sophisticated security measures, and the recent phishing scam did not compromise our data security.
