Anthem warns about ‘phishing’ emails after massive hack

After a huge hack, Anthem is warning about “phishing” scam emails that are targeting people it insures or has insured in the past.

The company behind Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance this week said hackers accessed records of about 80 million people, including their names, Social Security numbers and email addresses.

Anthem Inc. said Friday that the scam emails did not come from Anthem, but are meant to look like they do. The emails instruct individuals to click on a link for credit monitoring services.

Anthem will send physical mail through the U.S. Postal Service with information on how to sign up for credit monitoring

Anthem also says it’s not calling people, and if they get a call it is from a scam artist trying to obtain personal information.
