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
