If you’ve received a message from your boss requesting a gift card, it’s probably a phishing attempt. “We’re seeing a rise in gift card scams,” says Conrad Bell, Chief Information Security Officer at C Spire. “Hackers send people emails or text messages in which they pretend to be a supervisor or a senior executive. They trick employees into buying gift cards and sending them the activation codes.” Once the codes are sent, the money is gone.
