How To Spot Fake E-Mails

May 11, 2017

I received the e-mail below last week. Initially it appears to be fairly legitimate. I removed my personal e-mail address from these.

 

Always check to see who the mail is from. In this example below, it appears to be from Apple but when I click on Apple, I find it is from monitor@mobile.deicmar.com. Obviously not Apple.

 

A way to check on links in an e-mail without clicking on them is to let the cursor set on the link (without clicking) and a pop-up will appear showing you the actual web address as seen below. In this case, I'm pretty sure http://confirm.jamescsi.com/ isn't the right address for me to cancel an Apple password reset.

 

E-mail addresses will always end and website addresses will always start with the company's domain. Thus in this example, all e-mail addresses from Apple should end in @apple.com and links to their website should always start with apple.com.

Here are some examples of correct Apple sites and mail but the rules apply to any company:

www.apple.com
support.apple.com
support@apple.com

someone@support.apple.com
