@Kaustubh Katdare • 06 Feb, 2012 The best way to check is to check the headers of the incoming mail. Do you know how to do that?

Here's quick way to do that in Gmail -

1. Open the email in Gmail web interface.
2. Check the drop down box at the top-right corner of the opened message. Click on it.
3. Click 'Show Original'

Check the message for suspicious traces. If you don't know how to do that, post the contents of 'Show Original' here so that we can take a look.

You might also just call Infosys office and ask for confirmation.

In addition, the profile here: looks legit.

Check the message for suspicious traces
How do we know that ...which part is suspicious..??
@Kaustubh Katdare • 07 Feb, 2012 • 1 like Usually the SPF records, and IPs would indicate the source of the email. If the IP traces back to Infosys' servers, then there's a solid reason to believe that the email is authentic.

Check for 'Received from' details.

No! It's easy to disguise email to appear from The IP address is something that cannot be faked (to the best of my knowledge).
@viky1147 • 08 Feb, 2012 Big K. You are correct. But i said is something basic. something basic that is unknown to many. The best way is to confirm it by calling. This is what i will do and i am doing 😀

@namrata pimple • 12 May, 2016 • 1 like I'm not a registered user of czone but through a frnd I got a link of infosys so I applied but I got a mail from czone agency to send my scanned original documents n they will schedule a face to face interview of the company so is it fake or real?
@Karshil Sheth • 26 Jan, 2020 • 1 like

Fake, I guess... Because companies like infosys dosen't mention everything in one mail. For the next round they give information of that particular round and after you clear you can receive a mail for next. So on this basis I came to conclusion as it might be fake..

@Swarup Pan • 26 Jan, 2020 • 1 like

As an employee of Infosys I can say that you must talk to the infosys call executive. Get the number from online and directly call then and ask about it.

I think these kind of fake news and mails are scamming a lot of people day by day.

So, you must check and be double sure as you proceed.
