Are there signs to look out for regarding Phishing emails?
Yes. Definitely. Here are 3 good ways to spot phishing:
Unprofessional Presentation - Be wary of emails with bad grammar and spelling mistakes. A real, professional organization would not send a sloppy email to their customers.
Phony Links - If you think an email is suspicious, use your mouse to hover over the link without clicking on it. If the link you see while hovering does not match the link that’s in the email, it’s likely the email is a fraud. Also, remember that you should never open attachments from an unknown or suspicious sender.
Threatening Tone - Legitimate companies don’t threaten their customers. Never respond to emails about “account closures” or “security compromises,” etc.
