Phishing and other email-based cybercrime scams are incredibly common. How confident are you that you could spot a dangerous email when it comes into your inbox?

CLICK HERE to watch our Tuesday Tech Tip video all about identifying malicious emails before you become a victim:

There are a few key tips to keep in mind when vetting a potentially dangerous email:

  1. Examine The Entire From Email Address
    The first part of the email address may be legitimate, but the last part might be off by a letter or may include a number in the usual domain.
  2. Carefully Check All Links
    Mouse over the link and see if the link’s destination matches where the email implies you will be taken.
  3. Notice Misspellings, Incorrect Grammar, & Odd Phrasing
    This might be a deliberate attempt to try and bypass spam filters.

Cybersecurity often just comes down to knowing what to look for. Keep these tips in mind and don’t get caught off guard by a phishing email.
