    Experts at SophosLabs are warning MasterCard users to be on their guard against any emails which claim to come from the company following the discovery of a phishing campaign which attempts to entice victims with the promise of money off future purchases.

    The content of this phishing email is unusual since it attempts to lure users to sign up to SecureCode and receive extra security protection for their MasterCard accounts, by offering a 16 percent discount on future purchases made with the card. In contrast, typical phishing campaigns ask users to confirm details for maintenance purposes or due to database corruption.
