  • Tips to avoid email phishing scams:

    • Be wary of unexpected emails that contain links or attachments. Do not click on links or open files in unfamiliar emails.
    • Don’t believe what you see. Scammers can fake anything from a company logo to the sent email address.
    • Check the company’s website. Businesses typically post information on their websites.
    • Be cautious of generic emails. Always be wary of messages that seem overly general.
