It’s Very Hard to be Constantly on the Alert

Phishing Emails

You can’t let down your guard, even for a minute. Just two days ago, I got an email from Microsoft that my email account had been signed in by someone in Moscow, Russia. If this wasn’t me, I was to report the individual. OK, sure, I’d been warned on Friday, last, by a scammer that he knew my password and that he could take over my account any time he wanted. I kept thinking, why tell me? Just do it!

The Microsoft email was sitting in the Junk folder, so I knew it couldn’t be real, even though the return address was ‘correct’. If it was truly on the up-and-up Microsoft would have put it in my Focused Inbox.

My wife, Susan, gets Amazon and CanadaPost emails stating that a parcel needs a signature, redirection or some other ruse to get her to respond. I always say, just delete them. She even had a Yahoo mail notification that her account had been hacked. They’d misspelled Yahoo (if that is indeed possible) on the return email address. So, if something doesn’t ‘feel’ right, don’t open it.

You have been warned!
