Email phishing schemes are big business for thieves: The FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center (www.ic3.gov) estimates that this type of fraud resulted in more than $5 billion in losses between October 2013 and the end of 2016. Here are some tips to help you spot a phishing scheme.
Delete suspicious emails without clicking on anything in them. If you’re unsure whether a family member, friend or company needs to reach you, contact them through a phone number you already know or an email address listed on their official website.
If you’d like to report a phishing scheme, forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org and to the actual company, bank or organization impersonated in the email.
