Computer problems – Phishing

Here are a few TIPS to spot fraudulent phishing emails:
– A familiar (contact)name may appear in the ‘From’ and/or ‘Reply to’ field
–> Hover over the name(s) to see if unknown addresses appear instead of the correct and known address belonging to the familiar contact!
– The Subject line may contain a seemingly harmless message, e.g.: “Do you know about this” or “Take a look”
– Phishing emails may be disguised as an official email from a trustworthy entity, e.g. a bank
–> Look for misspellings!
– A strange hyperlink in the body of the message? Do NOT CLICK this link, as it may lead to a spoofed Website!
