Phishing attacks use email or malicious websites to infect your machine with malware and viruses to collect personal and financial information.
Play hard to get with strangers. Cyber criminals use phishing tactics, hoping to fool their victims. If you’re unsure who an email is from—even if the details appear accurate— or if the email looks ‘phishy,’ do not respond and do not click on any links or attachments found in that email. When in doubt, it’s best to proceed with cautious skepticism and report any suspicious emails to firstname.lastname@example.org so that actions can be taken to block them before they arrive in your inbox.
