New E Scam Alert
I just read this!
Recently the FBI posted a article regarding the new E Scams (Email scams). They first want to remind you that the FBI Does not send mass emails to private citizens. So if you receive a email which claims to be from the FBI it’s probably a scam. To report a E scam you may go to internet crime complaint center and file a report. Also if you receive unsolicited email offers you may forward them to the Federal Trade Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org you can read the full article HERE
Here are a Few tips to Avoid being E scammed online
1-Beware of any unsolicited email which claims to have pictures in attached files ( these may contain viruses).
2- Do not respond to or click on any links within a unsolicited email (spam). Only open attachments from known senders.
3- Avoid filling out forms that ask for personal information in a email.
4- Always compare the link in the email to the link you are being directed to, if they match and you are getting directed to a legit site.
5- Directly logon to the official site instead of linking to it through email, If such email appears to be sent from your bank, credit card issuer, or other frequently dealt with company, your statements or official correspondence from the business will give you the proper contact info.
6- If the email reads Act Quickly or states requires immediate attention Its probably a scam. A scammer likes to create a sense of urgency so you will quickly act..
Like I say if it sounds to good to be true it probably is!!!
