Phishing Email

This is an example of a very convincing email that could prove most damaging.


Firstly, I wasn’t expecting an email from eBay.

Secondly, on hovering over the link (NOT CLICKING IT) you can see that the target is nothing to do with eBay.

A good rule of thumb is never to click on a link in an email unless you are 100% sure it is directed directly at you and is completely genuine.

If you have a slight suspicion it might be genuine, don’t click the links but delete the email then open your browser and type in the address to get to the eBay website and check your account from there.
