    How To Spot a Phishing Email

    It’s the perfect time for hackers to send e-mails with dangerous malware and viruses. Right now, your inbox is probably filled with “COVID-19” subject lines and coronavirus-focused e-mails.

    Hackers are even using a fake cdc-gov e-mail address that’s not legitimate and spamming inboxes.

    How can you tell a phishing e-mail from a legitimate one?


    Here’s a few telltale signs:


    • Look closely at the e-mail address to make sure it’s spelled correctly.
    • Hover over links  to see the ACTUAL website you’ll be directed to. If there’s a mismatched or suspicious URL, delete the e-mail immediately.
    • Watch for poor grammar and spelling errors.
    • Never download an attachment unless you know who sent it and what it is.


    When in doubt, call the person who supposedly sent the e-mail on the phone to verify it’s legitimate.
