Instead of clicking on a link to sign into their accounts, online users should always go directly to their e-mail account providers’ websites and sign into their accounts from there. Once they are signed-in, they will be notified of updates, changes or things they need to do.
Online users who have already been tricked by the phishing e-mails are asked to change their passwords immediately, before their e-mail accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently.
