I received multiple emails to my personal email account instructing me to confirm my email, for an account I did not create. How do I prevent fraud?

Posted

Yesterday I received two separate emails (to my personal email account, separate from the one I used to post this message) from Firefox as part of a new account creation, neither of which I requested. The first included a link to confirm my email. The second included a verification code.

Hello Jkeene,

If you haven't requested any account, don't open those emails or click any verification link.

Make sure to mark those email address as SPAM, then you will not bothered about those emails again.

Thank you!
