This is an urgent and important warning, please read this carefully.

We've been alerted to a round of fake emails being sent out that look to be official emails from USAM, including using our logo and email design and even having a From: address of @usaudiomart.com.

The title of the email is "Please Verify Your Account on US Audio Mart" but may change as the scammer evolves his methods.

I'm currently investigating how they can spoof our email address, but in the meantime please be wary.

How to tell emails are fake:

  • If emails ask you to log into USAM or CAM, always look at the URL after you land on the login page. The URL must always be http://www.usaudiomart.com or http://www.canuckaudiomart.com and the login URLs are always secure URLs.
  • Always make sure browser is on our actual domains, and check our domain spelling, before logging in.

Here is a screenshot of the current Phishing scam:

What to do if you already clicked on and logged into the fake site

If you have already fallen prey to this scam, please log into your USAM account on https://www.usaudiomart.com/ and change your password immediately!!! Also, please contact moderators@canuckaudiomart.com to let know you had given your old USAM password so we can investigate whether anyone tried to log into your account without your permission.


What to do if you receive this scam email

We need your help figuring out how this user is spoofing things. Please contact moderators@canuckaudiomart.com to let them know you've received this email so we can start compiling some data.

Additional tips to keep yourself safe online:

  1. Never use the same password on USAM as any other site, otherwise someone who steals your USAM password through a Phishing scam like this one can try to log into your other accounts, or if they steal your password on the other site they can then log into USAM as you.
  2. Don't post your email address directly in classifieds or in our forums so that scammers don't try to email you with fake emails pretending to come from USAM.
  3. Don't trust any URLs that aren't on the official AudioMart domains.
