Delta Air Lines is warning its SkyMiles and other customers about bogus emails claiming to be from the Atlanta-based carrier.
To get customers to open the email, the sender claims a customer has purchased a Delta ticket, a credit card has been charged or an invoice or receipt is attached. Accessing the email, however, may expose the customer to potentially dangerous viruses that may be harmful to a computer, the airline said.
Delta says its emails end in “@delta.com” and advises customers not to open, click on or reply to any email that does not contain that ending. It also said the email should be deleted.
It is advising SkyMiles customers to immediately change their account personal identification number, or PIN.
“Be assured that Delta did not send these emails, and our customers’ credit cards have not been charged by Delta as a result of the emails,” the airline said in a statement. “These emails did not originate from Delta, nor do we believe that any personal information that you provided us was used to generate these emails.”
