When it comes to the internet there are so many things that we have to be careful about. Information that we put on the internet can have serious repercussion. Very often we blindly click on links from our email, and think that it is so legitimate. Then we get “hooked” by phishers. E-mails are often used by phishers to get people’s information such as passwords, and credit card information.
Phishing emails can appear to be very legitimate. I remember getting a particular email that asked to reactivate my amazon account by entering my credit card information. However, I did not fall for it because I knew that my amazon account had not expired, and I recognized the URL was not http://www.amazon.com it was www.amazon.suspiciousnamehere.com.
It is possible for anyone to fall into a phishing scam, as a result I feel inspired to educate others about it. There are several ways to spot phishing. I have attached a link which shows how to spot a phishing scam. So before you blindly click on that link in your email, click on this. http://bit.ly/9Jirke
