Recent Phishing Scam
 
Many employees at Pekin Insurance have been reporting that phishing emails are being sent to agents using employees' names. These emails look like they are coming from a name you know or work with at Pekin Insurance, but they are actually phishing attacks coming from hackers pretending to be Pekin Insurance employees. We are aware of this issue, and our Enterprise Security Department is assisting and providing the tips below to help protect yourself and your agency.
 
How to Protect Yourself From These Scams
When you receive an email, it is important to start with a few checks before clicking on anything. The first check is to see if the email address listed as the sender is an actual Pekin Insurance email address. As illustrated below, you can see the email address to the right of the name.
Tips
  1. If the email address inside of the black box is anything other than "name"@pekininsurance.com:
    • Delete the email.
    • If you do click a link, open anything, or put in a username/password, please talk to your IT professional for assistance.
  1. If the email address inside of the black box is "name"@pekininsurance.com, ask yourself a few questions:
    • Do I usually do business with this person?
    • Am I expecting this email from this person?
    • Does this person usually send me this type of email? (i.e., invoices or links)
If you answer no to any of these questions, reach out to either the person that sent you the email or to your contact at Pekin Insurance. If the email was not sent by a Pekin Insurance employee, then follow the instructions below to assist the Pekin Insurance Enterprise Security Department in an investigation.
