Things to watch out for in email...

Here are a couple of things to watch out for in emails...

  • Be very suspicious when the email address used in the body of the email, the "from" and the "reply-to" addresses don't match
  • NEVER click on a link in an email. Enter the address you know to be safe directly into your browser
  • Be very suspicious of emails from HotMail, Google and Yahoo email accounts when from people you don't know - these are disposable email accounts and popular with scammers
  • Be wary of email accounts from Netherlands (.nl) and other counties known to have many hackers and little if any law enforcement going after the hackers
