Tips on Avoiding Phishing Emails

  1. Does the email seem out of the ordinary, is it normal to receive emails like this from that sender?
  2. Check the senders email address by moving your mouse over the sender’s name (red arrow). A box will pop up with more information on the sender (green box).  Sometimes it will be obvious that it’s a phishing address, like if the address in the box is different from the displayed address in the email, but other times it might look like it comes from someone that you know.
