Today, Phishing emails are getting more and more clever by learning our likes and dislikes in social media. Also by looking at your website they can build a good picture of your organisation.
As such we don’t really advise much to do with these kinds of emails, apart from delete them, it’s worth knowing it’s sometimes hard to spot a spoof.
Here are some handy tips you can try when you are unsure:
- If you find emails going out as you for any reason (that you haven’t sent) please notify us immediately so we can change your passwords.
- Look for any bad english.
- If there is a link pointing to another website, have a look where this hyperlink is going, by hovering your mouse. Should this be anywhere other than what you would expect just delete it. Still not sure? Then go directly to the website in question. As an example you could have an email from a software supplier asking you to sign in to check bank details with a specific link, why not navigate straight to the suppliers website instead and check the circumstances? You will soon be told if your card is expiring soon etc.
- Banks will never ask for login info by email
