Scammers these days are getting better and better at finding ways to trick people into giving them personal information, such as bank account numbers, passwords, or Social Security Numbers. While some phishing emails are easy to recognize, there are quite a few that seem to be sent from a trustworthy company, coworker, or even a friend. So, how can you stay out of trouble and successfully recognize phishing emails? 


When in Doubt, Do Not Respond

If you receive an email that asks you to click on a link or open an attachment, do not do it, unless you actually know the person. However, you will still need to be cautious because the scammer might be pretending to be someone you know. If the scammer is talking on behalf of your co-worker, find another way to contact him or her and ask if he or she has in fact sent you an email.


Block and Report Spam

Roughly 156 million phishing emails are sent globally every day. To put an end to endless scammy emails, it will be in your best interest to block and report them right after you receive them.
