Emails are often used as a gateway for a hacker to access your computer. If you see a suspicious email, follow the steps below to see if you received a fraudulent email.
Email Sender Domain
Always verify that the senders' domains of the emails you receive are related to the entity that sent them. This precaution is important, even if it is not enough to see if there is a fraud attempt, since it is possible to mask email senders.
Addresses of the sites to which you are forwarded
If you're being forwarded to a site, make sure you're on the site you'd like to access in the navigation bar at the top of the page. If you want to access a specific site, enter the address directly into the browser and navigate from there.
Links that appear on an email
Hover over the email links and check what appears in the bar below. If it is a trustworthy entity, confirm the truthfulness of the content by contacting it. If it is not a regular address or if it doesn't have a common structure and naming, or if it is not related to the subject, do not click on it.
Do not open files before you make sure the content is secure.
Do not provide
personal information by email, phone call or SMS
Even if requested, do not provide personal and / or confidential information (such as the bank card number, username or password) by email, phone call, or SMS.
