Reporting fake or suspicious emails

Tips for identifying fake, suspicious, or fraudulent emails claiming to be Honey                                            We're always working to create the best experiences for members. As part of those efforts, we're consistently on the lookout for fake or suspicious communication.

If you aren’t sure if communication claiming to be from Honey is authentic, we suggest double-checking the following:
  • Validate links before you click on them                                                                                                                       Even if a URL or link looks “normal” at first – it can still be a phishing trap. If you’re on a computer, you can move your mouse over a link to show the true destination the link will take you to. If you aren’t 100% certain, we recommend not clicking on that link.
  • Contains unknown attachments                                                                                                                                      Only open an attachment if you're sure it’s legitimate and secure. Be particularly cautious of invoices from companies and contractors you're not familiar with. Some attachments contain viruses that install themselves when opened.
  • Conveys a false sense of urgency                                                                                                                                Phishing emails will often have an urgent tone – Like warning you to update your account immediately. This is to cause a sense of importance in hopes warning signs and red flags that the email is fake will be ignored. 

Reporting Suspicious Communication                                                                                                                                 If you wish to report any suspicious communications, we recommend the following:
