Safety: Mermaids Teach Japan How Not to Get Phished

From shady emails to suspicious phone calls, it's all covered in this hip-hop track

We interrupt this news and fun time feed to bring you a very special message from the Japanese Credit Card Association! They take everyone's information safety so seriously they put together a video that presents five points every consumer should be aware of regarding phishing. Reasons this is awesome include that it's a music video presented by, duh, singing mermaids, and the bad guys are demons with fishing rods. Yeah, you should just watch it:

 

 

Here is a rough translation of the lyrics:

 

"Because We Want to Protect You Every Time ~Five Requests So That You Don't Get Phished~"

 

Don't lose to phishing!

We have just five requests

Please don't ever forget these

Because we want to protect you

 

[1]

 

Here's an auction

We're a portal site

Continue, update, urgent steps to take

We need to make sure you're who you say you are so

Card number, password 

Input them right now! Click right now!

 

(no no-no no)

 

Be careful using email

Because there are fake addresses

Take care of your personal info, ok?

Because we want to protect you 

 

(2)

 

We're a card company

We're a card company

Your card has been used without your consent

We're going to suspend your card right now so

Your pin, your password

Tell us right now! Tell us right now!

 

(no no-no no)

 

Also be careful on the phone

Because card companies won't ask you these things

Don't release your pin 

Because we want to protect you

 

(3)

 

We're running a campaign

We're from this office

You won a special present

There are some procedures you need to follow so

Please look at this link

Click here! Click here right now!

 

(no no-no no)

 

Be careful of links

Because there are fake sites 

Let's confirm where the link is leading 

Because we want to protect you

 

(4)

 

Phishing mail, Virus mail

I've never worried about it—it has nothing to do with me

Your computer is secure

Security is such a pain

Go ahead in a carefree way without trying too hard

 

(no no-no no)

 

Be careful using email

Because there is countermeasure software

It will let you know if there are strange messages

Because we want to protect you

 

(5)

 

We're a card company

We're a card company

A new request, a regular procedure

This is not a strange message

It has the company's mark and the company's name

We have all that so relax!

 

(no no-no no)

 

Strange mail and sites

If you find them, contact your card company to see if they are real or not

We want to protect everybody

We want to protect everybody

 

We hope you this video helped you learn a lot about information safety "because we want to protect you!"
