Phishing Emails – Four things to watch for.

  • 1. The Subject and Message
    • Is the email invoking fear or excitement?
    • Are there obvious grammar errors?
    2. From Field
    • If it’s from someone you know, does the name match their email address?
    • If it’s from a company you know, does the email match the company’s website?
    3. To Field
    • Is the To Field blank or is your name spelled wrong?
    4. Hover Links
    • When you hover links, do they go where you think they should?
    • Are all the links in the email going to the same website?
