Email scams- What to look out for.

If you see these – it is very possibly a SCAM!
1. An email that looks correct but the email address is not 100% accurate.
2. An email that your account is compromised. 
3. An email about a purchase that you never made.
4. A scary email from the IRS or social Security.
5. Any email that threatens you about anything. 

 What should you

1. Never click any link in an email.
2. If you are concerned that it may be legitimate, contact the company or organization- but not from ANY number from the email itself. Do a separate search online.
3.Ask someone you trust, who is Tech Savvy for second opinion.

Remember, scammers often target people who
might not know better, like older  less-savvy individuals. Tell your family
and friends about scams so they can stay safe.
