Phishing emails

Phishing Emails

  • Don’t rush to respond. Don’t just believe blindly what is said in the email, instead wait and think about it for a few seconds.

  • Check where links are pointing. Just hover on the link and your browser will tell you the actual link where you will go when you click that link.

  • Manually write website address in address bar. Even if you are sure about the genuineness of the email, don’t just click on the links in the email, but type in the address manually. If you see the mail is from Facebook, just enter facebook.com in the browser and log in.

  • Spelling or grammatical mistakes are a possible sign of a phishing scam. Large organisations would not send out emails with errors.

  • By being careful you can improve your chances of avoiding phishing scams.
