  1. Never Feel Pressured

 

Fraudsters often use texts, emails, and calls to impersonate authority figures and gain trust. Never succumb to pressure in revealing personal or credit card information.

 

  1. Understand "False Urgency"

 

Exercise caution when encountering emails, text messages, or phone calls demanding immediate action or response. Scammers frequently employ tactics such as asserting "act now to avoid a penalty fee," instilling a false sense of urgency. Remember that no situation necessitates an instant decision; take the time to evaluate the circumstances.

 

  1. Double-Check That Link Before You Click

 

Phishing is a very common form of a cyber attack. Phishing is delivered through email or SMS, with the goal to get you to click a link that could automatically download malware to your system. Always double-check that you know the sender, and confirm that the link is secure.

 

  1. Never Reply to a Scammer

 

Phishing represents a pervasive form of cyber attack, frequently perpetuated through emails or SMS, with the primary aim of inducing users to click on links that may automatically download malware to their systems. To safeguard against such threats, it is critical to verify the identity of the sender and validate the security of any associated links before clicking on them.

  1. Emails CAN be Spoofed

 

Although most email software includes rudimentary spoof detection mechanisms, it remains crucial to exercise caution regarding this phishing tactic. Spoofed emails may resemble communication originating from an official domain, yet the email address is counterfeit. Remain vigilant and adhere to established cyber security protocols.

  1. Always Ask Questions

 

Interrogate yourself and seek the counsel of a trusted representative from the relevant organization purportedly represented by the scammer. Query yourself as to your familiarity with the sender's contact information, email address, or phone number, and assess the attachment or link included in the message. If in doubt, refrain from responding or clicking any links.
