  • Don’t click links within the unsolicited email.
  • Never fill out forms in the email messages that are asking for any of your personal information.
  • Compare the email link to the link you are directed to so you can determine if they match leading you to a legitimate site.
  • Be very wary of emails that claim to have attached files with pictures. The files probably contain viruses.
  • Open attachments that are only from senders you know. Always scan the attachment for viruses before opening it.
  • Research the legitimacy of any company before you purchase anything with your hard earned money.
