real or phishing?

Post by TOMO » Mon Jan 13, 2020 1:54 pm

On January 7 I got an email message from vanguard@eonline.e-vanguard saying I had to reenroll my security key by January 31. /this smells like phishing. Is it?

Your safest option is to call Vanguard to ask.

Just login to Vanguard. You should have a message from them there.

Multiple posts on this already. Phishing without a clickable link?

Avid user of forums on variety of interests-financial, home brewing, F-150, PHEV, home repair, etc. Enjoy learning & passing on knowledge. It's PRINCIPAL, not PRINCIPLE. I ADVISE you to seek ADVICE.

I was not asked by Vanguard to verify a security key, but to verify my Email address, because they could not send me an Email earlier. So I signed into V via Google and verified my Email address.
