There are several ways to determine if an email is part of a phishing attack:

Check the sender’s email address: Phishing emails often come from unfamiliar or suspicious email addresses.

Look for spelling and grammar errors: Phishing emails may contain typos and grammatical errors, which are often signs that the email is not legitimate.

Check the URL: If the email contains a link, hover over the link to see where it leads before clicking on it. If the URL looks suspicious or does not match the expected URL, it is likely a phishing attempt.

Be wary of urgent or threatening language: Phishing emails often use urgent or threatening language to try to get you to act quickly, which can be another indication that the email is not legitimate.

Be cautious of attachments: Phishing emails may contain attachments that, if opened, can install malware on your computer.

Look for suspicious requests: Phishing emails often ask for personal information or login credentials. It is important to be suspicious of any unsolicited email requesting personal information.

It’s always good to be vigilant and cautious when receiving emails. It’s better to double-check and verify the authenticity of the email before giving out any personal information. Managing Director - Chris Barnard
