Don’t fall for it – it’s spam!

Spam, hacks, spoofing, phishing its all a bit of a mind field really!

We have a lot of software now to protect us from email spam, viruses and the like but often it comes down to the user – how do YOU know what is what .. some of these emails can look very very correct and official

One has just popped into my account that I KNOW someone fell for – don’t be like them! Even after clearing out the emails it probably took a week before everything went back to normal.. yeah fun .. not!

So take a look at the attached and if you see ANYTHING at all like that then DELETE IT, BIN IT, IGNORE IT

Spam don't fall for it

And if you DO click on anything stop – run a virus scanner and call your IT person that looks after your emails

A very good rule of thumb though is..

  • Make sure you have anti virus and email scanner installed
  • Make sure that software is up to date
  • If you are not sure – don’t click on anything and forward or contact your IT person
  • Never open ANY attachment within email – always always download it to your PC first
  • If you do fall for a spam email – then don’t try to resolve it yourself online – that can often make things worse!
  • Be vigilant and be sensible – check for poor spelling and grammar
  • Check the sender email address – if you don’t know it – bin it!
  • Oh and if it’s too good to be true- it usually is!
  • And if someone is asking for money in an email and you don’t know them – do not pay it!

Here’s to happy emails and getting rid of spam!

Testimonials

As a serial entrepreneur it is wonderful to have people in your team that you can rely on to get new ventures off the ground. Sarah’s ability to interpret my (often ill defined) ideas and design websites and other collateral is invaluable. I shall continue to work with her, and appreciate her feedback, for some time to come.
