How to Protect Against Phishing
What is phishing?
Phishing is the illegal attempt to mislead consumers into providing personal or financial information, including account numbers, passwords and Social Security numbers, via email or through fraudulent websites.
The most frequent phishing attacks occur through email disguised to appear as though it came from a reputable financial institution or company.
Most phishing attempts urge you to update or validate your account information, typically through a link in an email directing you to a fake website that appears to be legitimate.
How to spot a phishing attack
There are many phishing attacks active on the Internet. Here are a few of their lines and lures:
- An email contains an “urgent” or “shocking” tone requesting your immediate action on an account-related matter. Phishers frequently succeed by getting consumers to act quickly without thinking.
- An email is sent from a user falsely claiming to be a legitimate company with an attachment. An unsolicited email attachment more than likely contains a virus. Do not open it.
- A pop-up window appears from a user falsely claiming to be a legitimate company’s website asking for personal information.
How to Report a Phishing Attack
If you suspect you have received a fraudulent email from Arihant capital markets ltd. or any of its subsidiary companies, please contact:email@example.com. If you believe that any communications with or from Arihant resulted in identity theft, call us immediately at 0731-3016100.

- When you are finished accessing your account, always log off and close your browser.
Avoid Email Fraud
Email can be a source of danger. Many internet scams today involve email messages that appear to come from a trusted source, but are not trustworthy. Additionally, email attachments can be harmful because they can contain viruses.
Do not respond to suspicious emails, the following email messages can be indications that an email is fake:
- The email claims to be from a legitimate company requesting that you change your password by clicking on a link. It may even threaten to suspend your account if you do not do this.
- The email claims to be from a person in authority requesting a copy of a password file, UserID, or banking information.
- The email asks you to verify your account information by clicking on a link and filling in a form.
- Right click on the link in the email and select properties. If the section under URL Address contains an '@' symbol or does not appear to be a arihantcapital.com address then it is likely fraudulent.
Here are some ways to protect yourself from email fraud:
- Do not reply to any email asking for personal information.
- Use antivirus software and keep it updated. Scan all attachments with an anti-virus software program before downloading.
- Do not visit links sent by email as these can lead to phishing sites-sites made to look legitimate and designed to collect your personal information. One way to avoid this is to enter the URL into your browser instead of clicking the link.
- Do not open or reply to spam email which can prompt more spam to be sent to your inbox.
- Turn off the "preview pane," as this allows some viruses to be executed even if you never actually open the email.
- Report suspicious email to Arihant Capital.

Beware of Stock Spam
Online investors should be aware of stock spam schemes that guarantee high returns but dupe you. In other words, a company might be promoted and recommended as the latest hot stock in chat rooms, supposedly unbiased newsletters, or even in its own press releases. Unwitting investors purchase the stock, creating high demand and inflating its price. Then those who are behind the scheme sell their shares at the peak, stop the hype, and the stock price plummets-causing regular investors to lose money.
To protect yourself, always do your research before you invest:
- Consider the source. Be skeptical. People promoting a share may well be individuals who stand to profit.
- Verify information. Making grand claims is easy for a company to do. Before you invest, be sure to independently verify those claims. When you see an offer in an email or on the Internet, assume it’s a scam unless your own research proves it’s legitimate.
- Know where the stock trades. Many of the smallest and most thinly traded shares trade in the
If you receive a stock spam email you can file a complaint with the Securities and Exchange Board of India. You probably only receive an auto-reply from them, but they do take complaints seriously and may be acting on yours behind the scenes.
