Can You Spot an Email Scam?

While anti-virus technology is constantly evolving, email phishing scams and online identity theft has increased dramatically in recent years. Here are a few ways to help spot a phishing scam.

  1. Look at the email address sending. Misspelled or uncommon domain names, or numbers inside the domain. Ex. john@miss10n.com, john@mission.nexx, john@missionnnn.com
  2. Suspicious attachments asking you to click from email addresses you don’t know. Always double check you know who the email is from before you click an attachment.
  3. Emails requesting login information, credentials, or sensitive and private data.
  4. Urgent calls to action or threats.

If you receive a phishing email do not open any links and report to your email provider.
