I have been sent an email purportedly from Zoom, but is it fraud?


Here is some of the email. What rang an alarm bell was that clicking a link within the email took me, not a 'zoom' site, but to a 'zoominfo' site. I have never heard of 'zoominfo'. (And . . this forum has no 'quote' button. Oh dear. And clicking 'preview' generates an error message.)

PS: I really should be able to contact some Zoom support person directly about this, though apparently my account does not allow that.



I find the following. Belatedly, the somewhat lyingly-named 'contact us' bot spewed out a link to a webpage upon which I could create a support request. So I have done that.
