How ‘Scam Savvy’ Are You?

Almost everyone uses email these days.

That means that most of us have at some time or another received some very convincing sounding (and looking!) emails pretending to have come from sources that we know and trust, but are actually fraudulently sent by con artists who are out to steal our financial information or even our identity.

 

Sometimes even the most ‘suspicious’ of us have been caught out! So how can you tell the difference between a legitimate email from a trusted source and a phishing email from a scammer?

 

I stumbled across a nifty little “Phishing IQ Test” that is both fun and educational.  I highly recommend you take five minutes out and do the test at http://www.sonicwall.com/phishing/
