How can I recognize phishing?

Unfortunately, it is not always easy to identify phishing as such. However, there are some warning signs to look out for that are good for detecting phishing.

  • The sender’s e-mail address does not contain @hostpoint.ch
  • Links do not lead to the hostpoint.ch domain
  • Subject lines and headings create pressure or demand immediate action
  • Very short deadlines (e.g. within 24, 48 or 72 hours)
  • Price differences between the e-mail and the payment page
  • Multiple spelling mistakes or even different languages in the e-mail
  • Strange mailing time
