Hi @batlb,

 

Greetings from Freshdesk Community. :)

We truly appreciate you for bringing this to our notice. We have notified the security team at our end and the required actions have been taken to stop spam emails being sent from support@helinga.freshdesk.com. 

Let us in case you still encounter any issues and we can sort it out ASAP. 

 

Cheers,

I've received hundreds of scam/phishing emails from freshdesk. I report everyone I get as spam and not even an hour later another suspicion/malicious email from freshdesk arrives. I'm guessing there's nothing you can do about this?

Hi @Collin ,

Welcome to Freshworks Community! 

I'm sorry to hear that you've received suspicious emails from one of the user who uses Freshdesk as their ticketing platform. It is definitely not out attention to put you in a tough spot. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we will pass on your feedback to our security team. To help us investigate this issue further, could you please send us a DM with a screenshot of the phishing email you received? Based on that, we will check and flag the account. Thank you for your cooperation.

Here’s to you,
Vidya D
