100 billion spam email messages are sent every day.
Even with the best email filters, you are still going to end up with some in your inbox. Trust me, I’ve been refining and tending to my Gmail filters for three years now, and I still end up with apx 10 spamessages a day. Take a look at the example message below to see how you can identify a spam/phishing message in your inbox.
Second, I look to the from name and email address. The email address is not one that I recognize. The URL is not known to me and neither is the person’s name. I also happen to know that we don’t contract with a company called ICT, so there is really no reason they would be sending me a support email.
And third, when I hover over the link in the email (Clean-up system) I see the URL is questionable and built on a free site that was likely put up just for this scam. Now, I didn’t click on the link, so I don’t know what is on that site, however, I can guess at what I would find. It would likely ask for my username and password at which time they would have all the info they need to hack into my email account.
So what should you do when you get an email like this? Delete it.
