Tips to help recognize phishing attempts and avoiding scams:
Spelling and Grammar
If you receive an email from a familiar or well-known source with poor grammar and spelling errors, this may indicate a scam.
Real companies generally keep copy editors and technical writers on staff to ensure only well-polished emails are sent to their users.
Never download attachments from an unfamiliar source or from an email you suspect may not be legitimate.
Ensure your anti-virus software is up to date.
Be especially suspicious of ZIP and EXE files, but keep in mind that even documents can contain a virus.
Emails which threaten to shut down or block your account unless you reply, select a link, or provide information, may be phishing scams.
Please forward all phishing emails to [email protected].
