Never Click on Suspicious Links - They May Lead to Phishing Scams

Phishing Techniques may be used to trick you into clicking harmful links. Slight variation in spelling for a trusted email address may be used to mislead you. Therefore, never click on suspicious links, that is, links that come from unknown senders or that do not go to where they claim they are going to. Remember that even a link that seems to come from a known source may not.

If it’s unexpected or suspicious for any reason, don’t click on it. Double check the URL of the website the link takes you to: unscrupulous people will often take advantage of spelling errors to mislead you and then direct you to a harmful domain.

If someone emails you asking for sensitive information, you can always call your bank or other organizations that you do business with directly to verify credentials before giving out any information.

Remember, legitimate companies will never send you an email requesting that you click on a link to enter sensitive financial information.
