10 Steps to Avoid Clicking on Spam E-mails!!

According to new studies almost 1 in every 100 e-mails is a spam e-mail or if you use your work e-mail almost every other e-mail that isn't from your company is spam.

With a new update to the iOS in Apple computers we figured it would best to remind you of some tips before you start replying to every e-mail you get. Check them out below:

  • Set your spam filters to "exclusive" so only messages from known senders make it through
  • Report shady messages actively as spam. Then check spam boxes for messages regularly in case some haven't been quarantined
  • Check the email address or telephone number behind the name. Often this will show up as an unlikely email address for a well-known company or it will not match the contact details you have saved in your phone.
  • Look at the address at the bottom of an email to see if it matches that of the real company.
  • Scammers will often use a general ‘Dear customer’ or your email address rather than your name at the start of an email.
  • Most e-mails that have said you have won a prize or are eligible for a special customer discount are usually scam
  • Never click on links or attachments in emails or texts unless you know who sent it!
  • Do not reply to spam e-mails. Immediately delete them!
  • Forward spam texts to 7726 which spells ‘spam’ on your handset’s keypad.
  • Install and update anti-virus software, provided by companies such as Norton, Sophos and McAfee.
