buydropbox phishing scam?


buydropbox phishing scam?

New member | Level 2


I received an email from "" that someone tried to access my account and to verify whether this was me by clicking on Yes or No. Email looks exactly like other emails I've received when I did use another device to access my account. Since the Outlook mail app listed only "Dropbox" as the sender, I wouldn't have noticed the "" part if I didn't open up the down carrot. Anyone else getting these messages? Also, just wanted to pass this along to the security team.

Hey @bh1980, thanks for reaching out to us about this. 


Generally, the first step is to check the domain that was used for email, and you did great with noticing that it was not one of them.   


You can find a list of official domains used, here


From there, you can forward the suspicious email to and our team will investigate. 


Follow those steps, and let us know if you have any trouble along the way or any other questions.
