Avoid the email Phishing Hook

Here’s a simple idea that is guaranteed to keep you safe from email Phishing attacks.

Don’t reply to, click on any link in, or use the contact information included in any email pertaining to personal, confidential, and/or financial information.

If you are concerned by the contents of the email then visit the site by entering a known URL directly into your browser, sending an email to a known address you have used before, or call the customer/contact number you have used before.
