How to prevent phishing scams?

1. Be skeptical of all unsolicited emails, even if they appear to be from a legitimate organization.

2. Check the sender’s email address and look for any discrepancies or inconsistencies.

3. Avoid clicking on links or opening attachments in emails from unknown or suspicious senders.

4. Do not provide personal information, account numbers, passwords, or other sensitive information in response to an email request.

5. Always type the website address directly into your web browser to access the website, instead of clicking on a link in the email.

6. Install security software and keep it up-to-date.

7. Backup important data regularly and make sure it is secure.

8. Enable two-factor authentication on accounts that offer the option.
