Verify that you are on this page https://www.Mason.com/when you create your new account, and when you return to your account to register for sales, pay online for your purchases or edit or add information to your account. You may want to add this URL to your browser’s Favorites or Bookmarks menu.
Create a strong account password for your Account and set up your Account Security Questions within your online profile (go to “My Account” and select “Complete Profile”).
Do not share your Account login details with any other person
Change your password on a regular basis.
Always end your secure session on Mason.com by clicking the Log Out link at the top right-hand side of the page and by closing your browser’s window.
Check the sender email domain name. Verify that the sender email domain is spelled correctly “@Mason.com.” Fraudsters often attempt to send emails from lookalike domains (for example, N1ftykit.com) to deceive clients.
Examine the sender display name and email address. Sender display names can be easily spoofed. When viewing on smartphones, tap on the sender’s display name to see the complete email address which will include the email domain.
Scrutinise the email signature in the message body. Sender name and contact details in the email body can easily be forged and are not a reliable way to ascertain message authenticity. Do not trust phone numbers in such email signatures—please only use confirmed Mason contact details when calling or emailing us, or go to our Platform.
Check if the message contains a mismatched URL or misleading domain name. If the message contains a URL with the Mason name in it, hover your mouse over the URL to see the actual hyperlink address. If the hyperlink address is different from the text displayed, the message is likely to be fraudulent.
Do not respond to requests to provide your Mason Account user ID or password. Mason will never ask you to provide those details.
Remain vigilant. If you unexpectedly receive an email about an unknown topic, it may be fraudulent. If in doubt, it is always safer to contact Mason.
If you receive any emails that appear to be from Mason and you believe they are suspicious, please forward them to [email protected][f]
