Phishing Attacks are increasing, Please BEWARE!

Those behind the recent rash of phishing scams are increasing the frequency and the attempts are much better than ever before.

E-mail users beware, those hard to detect phishing scams are becoming even more difficult to pick out.  Over the past week, I have received 75-100 different emails that were very cleverly done.  They were from services that I use, like Intuit, Apple, banks, etc and contain information that will entice you to click a link. 1st of all look at the from email address, if the domain looks “foreign” or not from the senders email address domain, do not click anything, delete it!!!  Hover over the links, if they show an IP address (string of numbers like http://124.43.12.121) or again a strange domain name, do not click.
