How to Catch a Phish?

Helpful hint on spotting a phishing-scam email before it's too late!

You can detect a fake email very quickly simply by focusing on the "From" field in your email header.

Most malicious e-mails say they are from a legitimate company, but the address in the "From" field does not match that in the signature. If you are unsure of the sender's legitimacy, you can also use free tools on the Internet to verify any email address quickly.

Be aware, however, that some of these phishing artists are very adept at masking their identities.
