This one looked like a scam to us.

Got his earlier today.

Dear Customer:

We’re letting you know that we’ve noticed some suspicious activity on your account. We believe someone has learned your password from a website or service not associated with Evernote. We care about the security of your Evernote account and to make sure it’s secure, we’ve reset your password.

Please take the following actions:

evernote logo1. Visit https://www.evernote.com/ForgotPassword.action to set a new password. We recommend that you choose a strong password that you use only for Evernote.

2. Review the “Applications” section of your “Account Settings” page and click “Revoke Access” for any devices you do not recognize.

We also suggest that you change your password on any other websites where you may have used the same password. You can find more tips for keeping your account secure on our Customer Security page: https://evernote.com/security/tips/.
The Evernote Security Team

If you are concerned about the authenticity of this email or have any questions, please visit this Help and Learning page: https://help.evernote.com/hc/articles/115004380587.

Here’s the problem – we don’t have an Evernote account. We have used the service when we have been invited to an event.  The service is useful but someone appears to have decided they can use its popularity and begin stealing your identity.

We aren’t going to touch this one with a ten foot pole.

The email looks Ok but – the trust factor we need just isn’t there.

That cardinal rule: “If in doubt – don’t.”
