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?
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.
Additional System Details
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.14; rv:65.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/65.0
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.
The System Details list shows you run an older Firefox/65.0 version that is no longer supported with security updates.
Please update to the current Firefox 71.0 release.
