Who is that email really from?

How Do I Spot a Fake?
Does this sound like a typical communication?
  1. Pay attention to the context of the email.  Look for spelling errors, grammar errors, and odd sentence structure.
  2. Are you being asked to review unfamiliar policies or procedures?  If you are being asked to download an attachment or click a link to review something that you have never heard of, think twice before you click.
  3. Are you being asked to do something that wouldn't typically be addressed via email?  Beware of email containing an attachment for your "paid bonus" or any other matter that seems out of the ordinary for email communication.
Who sent the email?
  1. Does the sender's email address appear to be from an unfamiliar domain or a third-party company?  Ensure the email address is from the correct domain name.  Hover over the email address and check for correct spelling of the company name you are used to dealing with.  Spoofed emails can be as tricky and one letter difference.
  2. Does the email signature make sense?  Ensure the signature in the body of the email matches the name and job title of the sender.  Some phishing scam emails have unusual, or inaccurate job titles in the email signature- or have no signature at all.
When in doubt, always pick up the phone and call to confirm the email is safe and legitimate.  They'll be thankful you used your resources, rather than putting your company, organizations, or self at risk!
