Whenever you submit any sensitive information to VALR (such as your username and password during sign on), make sure you are definitely communicating with VALR and not someone pretending to be VALR (such as a fake website). Some things you can do to protect yourself are:
Always make sure you are interacting with “valr.com” and not another website that looks like valr.com but is spelled slightly differently (phishing attempts will often ask you to click on a link that looks like valr.com but actually is not).
Always double-check to see who the sender is of an email that alleges to be from VALR. Any official correspondence from VALR will always come from an email address that ends with “@valr.com”. If the email comes from any other address, this likely means that the source is a malicious actor.
Don’t believe something that is too good to be true. If you get a request asking you to click on any links that make grand promises or ask you to collect a large sum of money that you were never expecting, it’s likely a phishing attempt so do not click on these links.
- Stay alert and always be extremely cautious with your sensitive information.
