>Advice For How To Spot Phishing>

There are 3 basic rules to spot a phishing email that should help in most cases – even during the coronavirus crisis.

  1. Check the email sender – they can be spoofed to look real (XXXX@WHO.ORG) but if they are obviously dodgy – delete
  2. Hover your mouse cursor over any links in the email before clicking – the true URL will appear so you’ll know if it’s fake – delete.
  3. Check the spelling and grammar. A lot of these hackers are writing without English as their first language. If it looks dodgy – delete!

It’s also good practice during this period to be ultra-wary of anything coronavirus related.
