    Exclamation Legit Email or Phishing?
    I received this email purportedly from CJ entitled: "Action Required – Update Your Account Information"
    Dear Valued Commission Junction Client,

    To provide a better experience, we are integrating our system with tools which will allow us to serve you better. Commission Junction has recently made a change to our interface with regard to the collection of customer names. Our system now requires that clients provide a First and Last name in separate fields. Our records indicate that the name on file for this email address currently does not meet that requirement.

    To ensure that your account communications from CJ and offers from potential partners within the CJ network continue to be effective, please login to the CJ Account Manager and visit the Account tab to edit your User name. Please complete both your “First” and “Last” name by May 1st, 2013.

    We appreciate your assistance in this matter and look forward to our continued relationship.

    "login to the CJ Account Manager" was a link.

    I looked at my CJ "Account" section and even when clicking "Edit" there is still only one box for "Name", so there is no way to change your name to separate first and last fields.

    Looks like phishing to me. Anyone else get this?

    Received the same email this morning to our unique cj email addy.

    Links within are being run through Marketo.com - which as a company itself appears legit.

    If you go to your Account setting, scroll down to the authorized users, you will can edit your "super user" to split up your name into two fields...

    MktO-n0173.com - Mkt O n 0173

    Why the hell are they using some suspicious looking domain to get our details?
    It is better and safe to type the Cj.com in the address bar and update the details.

    EDIT: It is a confirmed phishing attempt. In the legitimate CJ site there is no option for "First name" and "last name" fields. Did CJ database got compromised? !!!!!

    Confirmation from CJ that its NOT a phishing attempt:

    “It is in fact a legit email from us sent through Marketo. The name field in the account manager has been split into first and last name.”

    So what is it?

    Real or Fake?

    If it's a phishing attempt, then what about the change we made already?

    Can we change it back the way it was?
