Real examples of fake emails.: D96-64/2021E-PDF

"It’s important that you’re aware of these signs and are watching out for them in all your online activity. If you encounter these signs, here’s a few things to do: Don’t ignore them. Never click on suspicious links or respond to scam emails. If you’re unsure of something, go to the source directly. For example, if an email says you’ve missed a payment on your Netflix account, call the phone number on Netflix’s official website to check. Report scams to involved companies that allow you to do so. Take an extra five minutes to verify something is legitimate. It takes less time than recovering stolen data or fixing a virus-infected device"--Page [1].
