This is obviously bad #1

I’d like to start showing everyone some of the filtered malicious Email for the purpose of showing some of the most obvious tactics that cybercriminals use to take over your computer.

Exhibit A:

Let’s start with the basic checklist of things to look for when filtering your E-mail:

First things first– If you never signed up to receive E-mail fax notifications, this is NOT for you. In this case, the Email address that this message is originating from is the same as the company receiving the E-mail– So if you have a carwash business, and your E-mail is cars@carwash.com and you receive an E-mail from Incoming.fax@carwash.com… someone is trying to get you to click their message. Curiosity killed the cat– that is a mantra that cybercriminals live by. The unfamiliar should be avoided.

 

Just a little tip!
