Wawanesa Insurance has always been committed to protecting your personal information. As the prevalence of conducting business online grows, we have recognized the need to inform users of risks they may encounter, such as Email Fraud.
Internet fraudsters often use email or websites to impersonate well-known businesses online. Their goal is to take advantage of consumers by leading them to reveal their personal passwords or financial information (a practice known as email fraud or phishing). They may use upsetting or sensational information to demand an urgent response.
A legitimate organization will never ask you to provide sensitive information through email. If you receive a suspicious email, do not respond or click any links it may contain.
