Itâ€™s worth repeating:
- If you get any email from your bank, or other financial company who you do business with, that requires you to log in to your online account, don’t â€“ instead, pick up the phone and call your bank to ask if they sent you the email.
- Donâ€™t click on links in emails if you donâ€™t know who the sender is, no matter how compelling it might seem.
- If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
- Pay attention to spelling and grammar â€“ could be a clue to how genuine the email is. Then again, maybe not
