Scam and Phishing Emails

"Phishing" is when scammers send emails or text messages to trick you into giving them your personal information. These emails and messages can impersonate a company or business.

Tips to avoid phishing and other scams

  • Make sure your internet browser is on www.etsy.com before signing in to your account or entering any personal information.

  • Don't share your account information or password. Etsy will never ask for your password in an email.

  • Look for telltale signs of a phishing email, especially poor spelling/grammar or links requesting your password or credit card number. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with phishing email scams and how to recognize them here: http://www.onguardonline.gov/phishing

  • Don't use the same password across multiple sites. 

  • If you receive a suspicious email that says it is from Etsy, please let us know by forwarding it to spoof@etsy.com.
