Worried About Spam – 5 Things to Look For:
- Asks For Sensitive Information
(Personal or Financial) Even banks don’t ask for this stuff! Legitimate banks and companies will never ask for personal or financial information in an electronic message.
- Impersonation of Companies or People You Know
Many criminals try to fake the appearance of well-known companies or people that you deal with frequently. Look for the warning signs on this list, even from senders you think you recognize.
- Uses Scare Tactics
(For example: Will delete your account if you do not respond)
- Asks For Money in Advance
- Seems too Good to Be True
You have won a trip!
Beware of unexpected prizes or offer or money – never send money or give personal information to claim a prize.
