Phishing is the attempt to obtain sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details often for malicious reasons. This is usually by disguising as a trustworthy entity or organisation in an email.

5 things to watch out for:

  • Spelling mistakes and punctuation. These will always be accurate if the email is legitimate so if you spot a mistake, likelihood is it’s a scam.
  • The email address the email was sent from. If it definitely doesn’t look legitimate, delete it!
  • The website address that is linked. If the link looks illegitimate, have a quick search on the internet of the company they’re trying to imitate and see if the addresses’ match.
  • What they are asking for. If they are asking for a bank details or personal information, do not give this info away! It is a scam!
  • Attachments and Links. Never open an attachment or link if the email looks dodgy in anyway!
