You never want to hear those words. But how do you stay safe from emails that are scams and phishing attempts?
Follow these 3 tips BEFORE you answer the email or click on the link:
- If it seems too good to be true, it probably is: Emails that say that you are the winner of $1,000,000 or that you won a free vacation to the Bahamas are usually scams.
- Always check the return email address: If the return email address does not include the company’s name or contains spelling errors, it could be a scam.
- Always ask a trusted support person to look at it with you.
