Email scams are on the rise.  Do you know how to recognize an email scam?  The scammers have become much more clever than they used to be and are spoofing different service providers than were previously targeted.  Check out the video to learn how to recognize a scam and protect yourself from theft of money or identity.

The latest scams purport to be from Docusign, a trusted eSigning service and Amazon, the popular shopping site.  Don’t be fooled into clicking a link that looks legit!

Did you know that Gmail will show you if it believes an email is legitimate? Look for the key symbol in front of the sender’s name.  

That symbol was missing in the examples in the video.  Go back and have another look.

Just to be safe, use both methods of verifying, checking the link location and looking for the key symbol.

Hope this helps you stay safe!
