…and here are some tips on what NOT to do when you are suspecting an email to be a phishing scheme or spam message:

  • Do not comply with any requests made before verifying the source of the message.
  • Do not open suspicious-looking emails or attachments.
  • Do not make purchases based on spam messages you receive.
  • Do not respond to suspicious-looking emails from unknown sources.
  • Do not click on any advertisement within the email as that will also show the spammer that your email address is live and potentially even reveal your machine’s IP address.
