Email Scam Alert


Having received as many as four scam emails in as many days, I wrote a post to explain how to spot them, and what to do about them. 

If you receive any emails that are either confirming an action (by you) with a link or demanding action by you to avert some penalty, beware!

This is the tactic that phishing emails use. They impersonate brands that you may or may not do business with, and may even provide a customer service phone number.  

Some are more sophisticated in masking emails than others, but they're all attempting to get the same result -- YOU CLICKING THE LINK.  

For a deeper understanding, I had written an article that explains it in detail here.
