KnowBe4 Prevents Customer To Become Social Engineering Victim Of Duke Energy Vendor’s Hack


A customer just sent us this:

"Stu, the company who processes payments for Duke Energy’s walk in payments was hacked and as a result about 375,000 bank accounts may have been stolen.

"We here at my office just received a phone call from someone pretending to be from Duke Energy (they even spoofed Duke Energy’s phone number), wanting us to go to Kroger and get some prepaid visa cards to pay them or they would shut our power off, they then called back and said they were going to install new meters and said that info should be on our bill, wanting us to look at our bills phishing for more info, and we were to pay them over the phone with prepaid visa cards.
