If you received a suspicious email that looks like it’s from Octopi or Navis - or a company claiming to be associated with us - do not click links, download any attachments, or reply to the message. Report it to the IT or Security team within your terminal or within the terminal that manages your Octopi account. You may also report it to your email service provider from within your email client or application.
What you received could be a phishing email. Phishing is when scammers send messages that try to trick people into sharing their personal information. These emails often impersonate trusted brands like Octopi or Navis.
Spot a phishing scam
While scammers change their tactics frequently, look for these signs of a phishing or spoof message:
- Requests for your bank account, username, password, social security number, or identity. Never share this information
- A claim that your account is compromised
- An unsolicited email with a link to verify your account information
- Typos in the sender’s or “From” email address. It may looking something like: firstname.lastname@example.org (typo)
- Suspicious links that don’t lead to www.octopi.co. Before you click on a link, check the URL by copying it into your address bar without pressing Enter
- Emails that mimic our design
- Emails with .html attachments
