How to spot an email scam

Scammers are getting better and better at making fraudulent emails look genuine. To spot a scam, watch for these clues:

1. Always look closely at the email "from" address.

2. The email content may have broken English, misspelled words, or no punctuation.

3. It asks for a reply with personal information.

4. The email contains suspicious links and/or attachments.

5. The subject line (or email content) contains urgent or threatening language.

6. The content of the email is designed to trick you with an enticing offer or story.
