Have you received an email that you are suspicious of? Here's some warning signs of scam emails.
Check the message details: Is the message from someone you know? Is it sent directly to you or to a group of people. Does the subject of the email make sense for something you would receive? And was the message sent at a strange time?
Check the contents of the message: Does the message make sense for something you would normally receive? Is the spelling and grammar a mess?
Links in the message: Hover your mouse over the link, does the tooltip say the same address that the text does? If the link is shortened like bit.ly, tinyurl.com or goo.gl try copying it into this tool, does it go to a site you know of?
Attachments: Were you expecting an attachment from this person? Does it make sense to have an attachment with this message? Is the attachment file type actually a document (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc) or something else (EXE, VBS, etc)?
