I just got an email starting with:
Welcome to Medix! You can access your account at https://medixteam.bbo.bullhornstaffing.com/ and log in with your credentials as follows.
They then told me my credential were my email address, along with a temporary password they made me.
The thing is, I've never heard of Medix before. Apparently it's a company that does exist in my city, but I feel I'm being targeted for something malicious. Rather than click the link, I googled the words in it and found that the link is genuine, but it take you to a kinda sketchy looking login portal. What's more, the actual Medix page doesn't end with
bullhornstaffing.com. There is a site which ends with this domain (without the
medixteam.bbo.), but it's also a little sketchy looking.
Since they've given me a temporary password, I'm guessing they're pretending to actually be Medix, and they're waiting for me to update my password. Most users would use the same password as their email account, and it's game over from there.
I am not going to do this. Honestly, I'd rather just delete this email and move on, but does an email like this have implications that someone else may be attempting to impersonate me? I had similar trouble a while ago where I'd get emails confirming someone was trying to change the password on an old BattleNet account I'd not used in years. While I didn't really care if the account got hacked, I didn't want to leak any personal information that could compromise my email. Am I at a similar risk here?
Since I've never interacted with Medix before, I assume the only way I risk personal information is to interact with this email, but I don't know if there's something else I should do to protect myself than just delete the email.
