Phishing Scam Emails Often Target Legit Online Government Services

Sadly, scammers keep up with the news and make note of new programs or services offered online by government offices or businesses. This can lead to a legit program becoming the target of a phishing scam – emails that look real but aren’t.

Here are some tips on how to tell the difference:

1) Look for a suspicious sender email address….the content in the body of the email may look real but the address it came from is questionable.
2) Bad spelling, grammar, layout, or a generic salutation
3) Suspicious attachments or links – don’t open or click on them!
4) False sense of urgency or even threats

When in doubt, please call the business or government office directly using a number you look up yourself, not one found in the suspicious email. We’re here to help!
