global payments security breach warning

Posted

I keep getting a warning, it says it's from Firefox. It says Global Payments was hack and my credit card info may have been stolen. It says to follow a link to check my credit score.

I did read that Global Payments was hacked and peoples info was stolen, but why is Firefox warning me?

Mozilla doesn't send messages such as that.

Was that message in a webmail? If so, probably phishing to get you to that credit report website, and then ask you to enter some identity information.
