A very important thing to remember is, legitimate organizations like Microsoft or Blackberry, do not or should not use free e-mail service like Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail or others. Once you are asked to send information to these free e-mail service accounts that should raise a red flag.

Anyone can create an e-mail account at these free e-mail service providers and use it for malicious purposes.

Legitimate organizations should use e-mail addresses like "something@theirOrganizationName.com".

Example:

Our information e-mail address here at Online Threat Alerts is info @onlinethreatalerts.com instead of something like "onlinethreatalerts@yahoo.com".

Finally, if you receive an e-mail message claiming you are the winner of some prize and didn't take part in a raffle, promotion or any other betting games, this is a scam.

Remember to leave your question or comment, and read the ones made by others below. And, please report malicious, phishing or scam email messages, social media posts and websites to us. You may click here to contact us, or forward the email messages to: info@onlinethreatalerts.com .
