What a phishing email looks like

Ever wondered what a phishing email looks like? Maybe you’ve already seen one, but didn’t know it was a malicious attempt to collect your personal data.

So here are the elements you should watch out for :

  • Serious websites will never display your email address in the subject line
  • Check out the sender’s email to verify the validity of the email
  • Don’t be scared or pressured into clicking on anything, even though the email may seem urgent (the more urgent the email, the higher the chances of infection).

This is quite a poorly designed phishing attempt, but there are others which really look like the real deal. But don’t be fooled and always check links before you click
