Learn how to Spot Phishing email messages and Stop them dead in their tracks. Why is it important to stop phishing emails? People who do Phishing are trying to acquire information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by cloaking themselves as a trustworthy business or person. This How to video tutorial will show you how to deal with these scams and report the emails to the government that deals with SPAM.

Your First Clue in Spotting a Phishing Email Scam
The actual email address does not include the domain name from where the sender is supposedly sending the email from.

Example: The senders name is "Facebook.Accounts" but the actual email address is E41BAE8B@hidden.com. If this email was from Facebook the real email address would include the domain name of "Facebook", so it would look more life ???@Facebook.com

Your 2nd Clue in Spotting a Phishing Email Scam
You see web address written out such as http://www.facebook.com/home.php as seen in this video, but when you hover over the web address, you notice a much different web address. This is a spoofed web address and my advice is that you never click links like this ever!

Think about it, why are they showing you one thing, but taking you to a totally different place?

In Outlook right click your suspicious email and click on Message Options , then you can examine the Internet Headers of the email.

The actual email address does not include the domain name from where the sender is supposedly sending the email from.
