Be Aware of Scams

Criminals know that more people are now working from home, using home internet for work and school, and some may have fears about COVID-19. Check an email to verify it is from a legitimate source before opening it or an attachment. You can often do this by hovering over the senders email and verifying it is the correct email source. Re-read the email and the ask yourself if the sender would actually write to you in that format. Call. Never be afraid to call the sender and ask if they sent it.
