These fraudulent emails request individuals to confirm their personal details, credit card details, or user name and password. We will never send an email asking for your security information or direct you to a web page that asks for this information. If you receive an email that appears to be from House of Francheska that you suspect is fraudulent, do not click on any link contained within the email or provide any credit card details.
